    I seen a Little Grebe on my local pond two weeks ago and have visited the pond at least every second day. In the hope of getting some decent shots.
    This morning to my surprise there was a Little Grebe chick, which is as timid and elusive as it's parents.

    Seem to be having problem with the images looking a bit soft when uploaded to the forum.
    Better viewed on Flickr.

    Hats off to you any photo of a little grebe is a good one. They are so timid as you say.

    Thanks.
    I went back to the pond today to try and get some better images of the chick. Did see the chick and got some images, but not very good.
