  9. Gorgeous bird. Couldn't watch the video. Too upsetting I would imagine. The human race has much to answer for in my opinion ...

  15. Excellent images of the Great-crested Grebe Bob.

    I watched the 'sickening' video, but the comments from the shooting fraternity were much more sickening, a worrying mentally unbalanced bunch.

  16. Those drops on the birds really make those photos - I hope you didn't get wet in the process.

  18. HI Bob I love the rain on the Grebes back. I watched the sickening video. Why do people have to destroy nature and be cruel to get their kicks.

  21. I think Pete sums the video up perfectly more. Frightening we allow people like this to have guns in the first place.

  25. The Grebe is spectacular, I like all the coloration of the fine feathers on its head, magnificent, and the drops on its back are really special. It's supposed to frost here but hasn't yet. I'm trying to remember how hot and dry it was last summer....
