Black-necked Grebes in the sunset – 25th Oct

For the past week a pair of rather dapper Black-necked Grebe have been attracting some attention in Oxfordshire’s Vale of the White Horse, on an isolated flooded pit below the chalk cut figure that gives the locality its name. There not being much else of avian interest in the county at the moment I have visited this site on each of the last two afternoons, yesterday in rain and today as the light was failing. So to mark the end of English summer time for another year I present two more of those photographs that look like paintings that I rather like to indulge in now and again. I do not get on with the dark season at all and hence am heading off to Morocco very shortly for an early winter break – watch this space!
