WWE #34: Little Grebe or Dabchick

This is my contribution to Jez Braithwaite’s Water Water Everywhere #34 Photo Challenge and a continuation of my Grebe species theme.

This is a summer plumage Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis) on the large pool on the Brown Moss Nature Reserve near Whitchurch in Shropshire, England. When I was growing up in England a lot of people called the bird a Dabchick but that common English name seems to have gone out of fashion.

Thanks Jez. I stayed dry for this one. Although I could have had damp knees. I seem to remember kneeling in the sand at the waters edge.
