Finally on my usual lunch time wander at Brompton Ponds, a semi close (not at the far bank!!!) Little Grebe showing well and not immediately swimming away.
Note to myself though to take photographs of the more mundane birds around as summer progresses, as the birds in view today were:
Mute swans (female on nest for last 10 days with male in close attendance)
Little Grebes (of course)
Swallows (first 2 of the year over the water, but didn't stay around)
