Great Crested Grebe
The great crested grebe is a graceful bird that lives in vegetated areas of freshwater lakes.
It’s a great swimmer and excellent diver feeding mainly on fish, but also little crustaceans, insects and even small frogs.
This species was hunted almost to extinction in the United Kingdom during Victorian times in the 19th century for its head plumes, which were used to decorate hats and ladies' undergarments……. !
