Grouse and Grebes
This last week has been excellent for getting out and about with the camera.At long last we have had some bright and sunny weather for a change. Signs of Spring are very much with us as temperatures soar into the teens and nature responds with feverish activity.
I have concentrated this week on two species namely Great Crested Grebe and Red Grouse.I have been fortunate to locate a pair of grebes nesting on a local nature reserve and have spent many hours observing the comings and goings around the nest site.I have also made a couple of treks to a local grouse moor to observe the numerous grouse now on territory and providing many wonderful opportunities for the camera.
I have shown above a very small selection of images obtained but many more will be uploaded in due course. The grouse in particular were very approachable and I managed to fill the memory card with some memorable shots and was well pleased with my week's work. The good weather is set to continue and I will no doubt be off again to add yet more images to the portfolio.Thanks for looking in and keep tuned for many more of the same.
