I also got my first look at the Great Crested Grebes since they left the nest. The four youngsters are still going strong and getting to the stage where the adults don't want to give them a lift. That doesn't stop them trying though! After several attempts seems they might finally have managed a very good return for their efforts, assuming all four survive.
Only walked around the Finger lakes but did note at least 20 Common Terns over the main lake. Also a Reed Warbler singing strongly in the main lake reed bed near the steps into Fingers.
