Grebe on a Perch


Observing this great crested grebe from a hide at ANR I saw it catch a fish from just below the surface. The stripes on the fish’s flank and the spiky dorsal fin indicate that it is a perch. It took some time and several attempts for the grebe to swallow its meal. The tail of the unfortunate fish is just visible in the next picture.
