Hope you all are enjoying Christmas so far and have Happy New Year!
Some great news for Cassiobury, a Little Grebe was spotted in the river and this bird has only been recorded a handful of times in the past!
The photos are not great as it kept on dissapearing under water.
If you look closely this little grebe has caught a tiny minnow! What makes this so cute to me is that this bird is tiny and it’s prey is proportionally tiny to it 😍 It was so pleased with its self too, and took its minnow to show its friends! I think I may have a new favourite water bird at Braunton marsh now!
Aren’t little grebe just adorable! I could have lay there all day and watched them dive for little fish! Shame the sun sets at 4pm this time of year or I probably would have! If you go onto my profile and view the next picture I’ll upload, the grebe finally caught a fish! Their tiny birds and this fish was too and it was the most hilariously cute thing I’ve seen in a while!
