Napton Grebes , and Sonic Booms !!!

Decided after work to call in at Napton , on a lovely evening .

The local Great Crested Grebe pairs were very active with a lot of agressive posturing between the pairs in the middle of the resevoir , then and, most frustratingly one of the pairs put on a full display over the opposite side of the resevoir from me , out of range of my lens . Weed , and a fish present for the female , the full monty , and no pictures , arghhhh !!!!.

Just as I was photographing one of the Grebes , a huge boom , made me jump , apparently a Typhoon Jet breaking the sound barrier , on an emergency scramble.

An interesting and eventful visit .
