The GCG's seemed to favour the other side of the loch so i headed over to see if i could get a little closer. I was now shooting into the sun but used this to create a low key sidelight sort of effect. Quite happy with the outcome.

Headed back out to Linlithgow Loch this morning as the weather was just superb,much better than on my previous visit! Arrived to see several other togs ,one of which had his 1DMK4/600mm combo perched on a fully submerged gitzo tripod about 1mm off the water of the loch ! Brave man:O) ...we were all after the same thing ,Great Crested Grebes! They kept a fair distance most of the time so i spent a while shooting the other birds that were around. This Coot being the first in my sights and i was happy to finally get some decent images of them. Bit of a tricky exposure in the sunshine!

Woke to blue sky and sunshine and made tracks for Linlithgow Loch. As soon as i arrived the clouds rolled in and everything turned dull and grey with a spot of rain to boot!! I was a little annoyed but that did not last long as i soon had what i came for in my sights... Great Crested Grebes:O) My first ever encounter with them and what a superb couple of hours spent watching courting/display behaviour and even a fight between 2 males. They stayed a bit too far off for detailed close range images but i am happy with what i managed today.
