Great Crested Grebe Family
The Great Crested Grebe pair nested and produced two young in the summer of 2012. They were assiduous and careful parents, moving their base from the nesting site down to the bottom of the Marina where they used the vegetation on the water’s edge to keep their young safe from the swan families, quarrelling coots and busy mallard and tufted duck broods. They were photographed by many people at the Marina. The pictures below focus mainly on the parents bringing fish – sometimes a bit too big. Thanks to Richard Triggs and Rose Williams for the majority of photographs.
