Happy New Year!
Happy New Year to everybody! The first upload this year is one with a nostalgic value for me. During my highschool period (about 30 years ago … ouch!) I watched these brownish Little Grebes (Tachybaptus ruficollis/Dodaars) every winter on the Dommel river in Eindhoven. They dive in and around the rich vegetation of the banks in search of something edible. Over the years I forgot the plain beauty of this scene. Until today.
