Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis)

This happened to be my local,  21.5 kilometers from where I live, Magor Marshes. Around by me, there is Severn Beaches, Beachley, Forest of Dean and Slimbridge. It is fantastic. But, I'm getting a bit old, so I don't think that I cannot put up as often, poor old thing.This is from Magor Marshes, the Little Grebe, my favourite.
