Last Thursday, 17th July, I decided to pay a second visit to the under-wraps site to see how the Black-necked Grebes and their chick were progressing. Showing was one adult and the chick that had grown considerably since my last visit. The adult was feeding the chick constantly although in an area well hidden by willows and reeds.

The absence of the second adult is an indication that there may be a second brood in the offing - time will tell but there was certainly no signs at the site at the time.

Only one thing to do - sit down in one of the few areas with a clear view and wait with camera set on the lowest setting of the tripod. It took over an hour and then they started to drift in my direction and stayed right in front of me,  no more than 10 metres away for well over half-an-hour, diving and feeding. Well, you tell me of any photographer that would not fill his boots with that!!!

but was still being constantly fed although it was diving itself.

Some behaviour that I noticed for the first time was that the adult tipped it's bill towards it's breast most times after feeding the chick. The chick only responded once

I have never heard of this behaviour before - has anyone else?

After a highly successful morning, I moved on to Titchwell RSPB, getting there late afternoon after the busy time. Usual story - water level on the freshmarsh too high to allow any waders close to the hide. Avocets were close in with the occasional set-to

but nothing of real interest - when will they allow the water levels to drop so that the mud is revealed close to the hide to encourage the waders to come close?
