So, Mark, myself and Willow grilled the flat-calm mirror at the east end for a good 40 minutes before work this morning, from all angles possible, made noises like dragonfly larvae and fish fry, bit alas we could only manage three portions of grebe. We even picked up the RNG several times, despite it being really active and moving around the place diving constantly. There were lots of Dabchicks present setting our pulses racing momentarily, only for hopes to be dashed when they resurfaced. So, disgruntled, we headed off our separate ways for work.
Later, another birder turned up and found a Black-necked by the south end of the dam (but interestingly could not find the Red-necked...).
I give up!!
2 portions of grebe, with plenty of room for 3 more...
