Great Crested Grebe with Crayfish

A few shots of a great crested grebe having just caught what I believe to be a crayfish.  The shots range from the initial catch to the demise of the poor crayfish, it’s always amazing to see the size of fish that a Grebe can handle.  Taken at Wilstone reservoir near Tring in Hertfordshire.

Great Crested Grebe with catch!

I followed this great crested grebe for an hour whilst it was diving, fortunately my patience eventually paid off.  Taken at Wilstone reservoir near Tring, Hertfordshire.

In The Field With Canada Geese

Here are a few shots of Canada geese which were busily moving to and from a field next to Wilstone reservoir near Tring.   Unsurprisingly, a relaxing hour ensued whilst I sat and waited for the right shots to happen.

College Lake – Wildlife

College lake is a former chalk quarry in Tring, Buckinghamshire, which the Wildlife Trust has fairly recently made a conservation area.  Entrance is free although you are requested to make a recommended £3 donation to use the car park which is not obligatory.  A two to three mile walk arount its perimeter makes for a great leisurely stroll and gives the opportunity to stop at one of its many hides to observe the wildlife.  So, despite disappointing skies and less than ideal photography conditions (and a hangover), this is how I spent my bank holiday Sunday afternoon.  Link:  http://www.bbowt.org.uk/college-lake-environmental-education-centre
