Pitsford Reservoir ...... Great Crested Grebe in brilliant sunshine having a wash and brush up ........

The light quality was really superb and the birds plumage was shimmering like quicksilver.

If we spend a lot of time in water we get wrinkled skin like a prune that disappears with time.

If you are a diving water bird you need to look after yourself ..... a bit of preening keeps the feathers waterproofed and in fine condition for the next underwater fishing expedition.
