I spent a couple of wonderful hours photographing the ducks and grebes on a local pond. Amazingly, I have driven past this location for years and not even known it was there. It is literally on my doorstep - and one of the best places I've ever seen for getting close to Great Crested Grebes. Being able to get right down to the same level as the water really makes for some lovely reflections and better compositions all round.

This was photographed today on my Yorkshire Birds Photography Workshop at Malham. The Jackdaws are very tame, so with a little food they were persuaded to a photogenic spot, providing good opportunities as they flew in.
