Courtship ritual for the GCG .3 prs on the reserve today,Sunlight a little too bright for the perfect image,but so good to know that these birds are once again nesting here on the Hodbarrow reserve.
thanks Robert,lots of" testosterone overload " out on the reserve at the moment,both male swans and Grebes seeing off all intruders,albeit these two species do show a healthy respect for each other,as it were.
Now you know it's spring
