Great Crested Grebes

So for today I thought I'd go with a photo story. Back in May we visited the RSPB reserve at Old Moor. As soon as we entered one of the hides we knew something odd was going on from the strange shrieking noises we could hear. Turns out two pairs of Great Crested Grebes were having one violent looking fight.

The photos are the edited highlights of the the fight; squaring up to one another, violent fighting, and finally after one couple had been chased off, the other couple were left to enjoy each others company.

Impressive or what! And not just the photography!

It was a really impressive display, but I certainly would not have wanted to get too close to them. Those beaks look sharp and they seemed determine to drown each other!
