Great Crested Grebes & Other Birds - Loch Leven

I visited Loch Leven on a glorious spring afternoon recently.  I went along mainly to watch the Great Crested Grebes and saw several pairs displaying, as well as a few altercations between them!  Plenty of other bird life around as well.

As well as the photos below, I took a video of the Grebes which you can view on YouTube at this address: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9wElF-uqLs
