Great Crested Grebe Courtship Display at Stodmarsh

Great Crested Grebe.

I spent a very enjoyable birding session at Stodmarsh from the Reed Bed hide last Wednesday the 25th March and the highlight was watching Great Crested Grebes doing their courtship display , here is the display in pictures.

Facing each other head shaking.

Then bowing .

Swim away from each other.

Then one brings some foliage .

Back together again

Offering foliage .

Accepting foliage .

Taking a bow .

They have built a nest viewable from the hide so hopefully they will be successful and raise some young .


Thanks for taking the time to add a comment on my blog.
