While I was out and about around some lakes near Swanton Morley I was able to watch a pair of Great Crested Grebes feeding and carrying their young. They remained a little too distant and mobile for the best of shots, but these images show the young riding on the back of an adult and also a food pass. I have never got any shots of any quality of either of these behaviours before.
I really like these birds for a couple of reasons. Firstly, the decline of the Great Crested Grebe was one of the prime reasons why the RSPB was formed, and I have had so many good days out on RSPB reserves it's good to remember how it all started, and today it is one of the largest conservation organisation in the world (if not the largest).
Secondly I can see these birds in Australia as well as back in the UK so they are like a reminder on the past and an opportunity for the present.
So, now it's over to you - click the blue button and join in. And with luck I will be able to visit your blogs much more rapidly that I have been able to manage in the last few WBWs!
