I've been keeping an eye on Priorslee lake whenever possible lately, there HAS to be a Caspian Gull by Christmas!! One or two adult Yellow legged Gulls have been showing regularly but the star turn of today was this newly arrived cracking Black-necked Grebe!!
Busy keeping that red eye on the look out for danger but totally confiding and a ten minute burst of close up activity provided my clearest images to date......
Head on shots seem to have much more character!
That's the portraits done then - hopefully it will hang around for some action shots??
