Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis) also known as the 'Dabchick'. Our smallest grebe with a very dumpy body, short neck, a tiny straight bill and in breeding plumage the yellow gape spot is usually visible at some distance. In all plumages they ususally display a distinctive 'powder-puff' rear end but this adult decided to show me more than I bargained for!   FAB.

Taken at Barnes WWT - ISO 200; F/10; 1/400 @ 260mm and cropped.

A Fallow Deer keeping a beady eye open for intruders whilst trying to remain inconspicuous amongst the lush fern foliage. I will post some more images of my recent encounters with a number of Fallow Deer on my Early Birder blog in the next few days.  FAB.
