Great Crested Grebe (Forest of Dean)

I have been reading Keith's blog (http://holdingmoments.blogspot.com/) and I was a little bit jealous, lol. The Great Crested Grebe I thought, I know where it might be, so I got my trailor and my Tramper, (mobility scooter), headed over to the FOD. And yes, there it is. But it was too far to get a shot in. So, here is one from a couple of years.
