Stithians, more Great Crested Grebe

Another quick visit to Stithians before the light went dull and overcast. Despite the Great Crested Grebe displaying their courtship ritual, the display was still to distant or obscured from the camera view. I could of had a better view by grabbing a chainsaw and cutting down the dead tree that was in the way, but this would of been unethical and extreme gardening. So until my luck changes and they display near the hide distant shots it it is. A sunny day with no wind is what is needed, oh  and a pair of co-operative Great Crested Grebes displaying adjacent the hide. Ok here are the pictures, not brilliant but you can see the potential for some fantastic images if luck is on your side and all falls into place.

It's great to see them perform like this Bob, and you've captured a good shot in the second.
