Great crested grebe family dining on fresh fish
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This family of Great crested grebes have made their home in Millwall Dock, right in the heart of London’s Canary Wharf. They are excellent swimmers and divers and I was able to observe the male bird diving deep underwater to pursue his prey; minnows, resurfacing soon after, to feed his family. This happened a number of times, feeding the three chicks first and when they all had their fill, offering his fish to the female.

Great crested grebe - mother and chicks
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Very young grebes often ride on their parents' backs and although here, you can only see two little heads poking out from under their mother’s wings, there were actually three chicks aboard. The third is buried under its siblings and nestled deep in its mother’s plumage. Young grebes have very distinctive black and white stripes on their heads and bodies but they lose these markings when they become adult birds.

Great crested grebe
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The great crested grebe is a delightfully elegant waterbird with ornate head plumes. During the Victorian period, its feathers were used to decorate ladies' undergarments and hats, which resulted in it being hunted almost to its extinction in the UK. Great crested grebes are the largest grebes in Europe and are clumsy on land because their feet are placed so far back on their bodies. They dive to feed and to escape, preferring this to flying. They also have an elaborate courtship display, in which the pair rise out of the water and shake their heads, as they approach each other with weed in their bills.
