Great Crested Grebes

On my walk around Attenborough NR this afternoon (13/03) I was pleased to observe the beginnings of pair bonding among the Great Crested grebes. They spent some minutes face to face copying each others’ movements. Spring is in the air!

The resident Buzzard was on one of its favoured telegraph pole perches, the usual selection of small birds were enjoying the seeds placed on fence posts – including both male and female Reed Buntings – and a female Bullfinch was enjoying the fresh shoots on a hawthorn. The most abundant sight however was a veritable army of volunteer litter pickers – well done to them!
