Slavonian Grebe at Fairhaven Lake

October 6, 2011:
A non-breeding plumage Slavonian Grebe arrived at Fairhaven Lake yesterday and is possibly one of the Scottish birds. The weather conditions today were atrocious with gale-force gusts of wind and periods of horizontal hail.

In this weather the bird kept fairly close to the lake shore but continued to dive, sometimes surfacing with a captured small fish.

{Today's very poor weather]

  1. Some great shots Mike regardless of the poor light and drizzle.
