Blue Tits Providing

Relentless, just relentless, is the only way to describe expectant blue tits.  The blue tits in my garden are currently providing for their chicks in my bird box.  For approximately 16 hours a day they work together non-stop in their efforts to collect small green caterpillars to feed their chicks.

Courting Great Crested Grebes

A few shots of a couple of great crested grebes carrying out their elaborate courtship dance.  It would have been ideal if the weather had been better and the grebes closer to shore however, this was the first time I had observed this behaviour.

Great Crested Grebe with catch!
