Little little grebes
It seems to have been a good year for little grebes. The young are now independent and becoming successful fishers. These youngsters were catching a fish on almost every dive.
This one has a three-spined stickleback.
And this one has a ten-spined stickleback.
The birds shake the fish vigorously to subdue them before swallowing them but occasionally lose their grip and the fish escapes.
