Grebes - A wash & brush up!

Yesterday lunchtime I popped over to see how the grebes were progressing, no display activity in fact I only saw the pair together briefly on one occasion. Most of the time what I'm assuming is the female, was out of sight at I guess the nest. The male would often pop in to see and occasionally there were some very strange noises coming from the small patch of reeds.........I wonder what they are up to in there!

It was really amusing to watch them having a wash and brush up and some of the odd positions they had to get in!

and back to looking lovely again!

The local corvids all went up at this point, I suspect a bird of prey went over...and it was certainly not missed by the grebe!
