The Slavonian Grebe at Wanstead

Just had to go back for the Slavonian Grebe at Wanstead Saturday morning and like last time the Herony Pond was mostly frozen over but time it was the dark and shaded area with over hanging trees that was ice free  , so not ideal. Watching the Grebe snorkelling is something I've never seen Slav's do before, just like a Great Northern Diver does when hunting fish but this Grebe likes Sticklebacks! Later on in the session I was joined by Jono and a smart female Kingfisher which he needed for his all important Wanstead year list.
