After a mild winter, the local birds are already feeling the need to breed, and yesterday’s walk took me past a Mute swan and a Coot both sitting on nests, as well as this pair of Great crested grebes.

During the time it took me to walk first along one side of the waterway, then back along the other side, the grebes mated twice, so I’m sure they’ll soon be sitting on nests as well.
