Red-necked Grebe,Fairhaven Lake - 9th January

It was late afternoon when Mrs G and I arrived at Fairhaven Lake with our 3 border collies. The plan was to walk the dogs and hopefully get a few shots of the Red-necked Grebe that has been on the lake for about a week now. It was quite distant when we arrived but I managed a few shots before the boys decided they'd had enough and wanted to move on. It turns out these were my best shots even though I got closer views as I left but with the sun going down behind the sand dunes I struggled to focus in the fading light. At least a few record shots more than I got when one visited Brockholes on 10th May 2009.
