Great-Crested Grebes

We saw a little great-crested grebe family on the lake at a local country park over the weekend. One parent had gone out into the middle of the lake and the other and baby were left in the reeds. Despite having one parent nearby the baby was calling over and over for the other. They are my favourite water bird and I am longing to see the famous courtship dance so I have ear-marked this lake for an earlier visit next year.
