Wednesday evening’s Springwatch on the BBC (27 May) featured the unusual feeding habits of certain birds, amongst which was the feather-eating habit of grebes.
They showed a small selection of photographs, one of which was taken by BCC member Lindsey Bowes. Lindsey had been contacted by the BBC to ask whether they could use her image, which they had found on her Flickr page. Lindsey is a talented wildlife photographer and you can see more of her fantastic images on Flickr at https://www.flickr.com/photos/elbowes/.
As you can see, the featured image was a lovely picture of a Grebe chick taking a feather from the nest. Very well deserved congratulations to Lindsey!
