Venus Pool - Egyptian Geese

Two Egyptian Geese have been popping in and out of Venus Pool lately. No idea where they go and this is the first time I've actually seen them!





Ooops, I meant Venus Reservoir! This was where a bit of mud was starting to appear? Soon be back to winter levels at this rate...




'Thinks' Let's find somewhere else?



And off they go...






Nice angle of view!?


Mind that Coot!


Then up, up and away...

Venus Pool - Great Crested Grebes display

Apart from the Egyptian Geese, there was nothing else of note present today but there was a bit of noteworthy activity...


What started off as an easy going mirror dance...


Went to the bearing weed stage...


And then exploded into action!


A shame I was at the wrong angle for the high performance stuff...


But even as things appeared to slow down, there was still a lot of energy going on down below as both Grebes were virtually motionless out of the water!




It's quiet for sure but always something going on, somewhere...
