On the water.

Another visit for an hour on a wet Friday morning to a local Lakeside park with the aim of watching the resident Grebes, it was nice to see 6 birds in 3 pairs so I am hopeful there will be some nests this year.

A local radio-controlled yacht group were sailing their pond yachts on one of the lakes, this quiet past-time does not conflict with the life on the water.

Tufted Ducks are smaller than the mallard. They have a small crest although you can not see it in my photographs.

Graylag geese seem very at home with the visitors and allow you to get close to them.
