Rarity for Feckenham

I first noticed the Slavonian Grebe at 10.30 am on Wednesday when the resident Coot started to get agitated. It chased the Grebe before diving on top of it and forcing it under water. The Grebe however, surfaced some distance away leaving the Coot totally puzzled as to where it had gone. As the Grebe was now well out of the Coot's teritory it left it alone to feed for the rest of the afternoon. Diving every 3 or 4 minutes, on most occasions it was coming up with a Stickleback.

It spent most of the afternoon feeding before settleing down for a sleep in the sun, only to be disturbed by the family of returning Canadas!
