Black Necked Grebe at Drift

Today made up for missing the grebe at Drift yesterday. When we arrived it was way over on the far bank opposite the hide, to far away for photo’s. After loosing sight of it for about 10 mins we assumed that was the last we would see of it, we were wrong.

It drifted past the hide about 2 meter’s out!!!
It then stayed close (ish) to the bank until about 5pm when we left. Thanks to Bob for letting me borrow the 600mm (again)
