More Slav-tastic Grebe

With a couple hours spare and today's rain finally relenting I headed to Wanstead Park for another look at the showy Slavonian Grebe. I soon found it hugging the perimeter of the lake, where it seemed very content and was regularly diving and catching what looked like sticklebacks. The bird has now been on site for five days and unless we have a sudden cold-snap and the lake was to freeze over I can't see this bird moving off anytime soon.

When I originally photographed the bird last Saturday the weather conditions and light were poor, so it was good to go back and capture the bird again in more favourable conditions.
