  8. I think grebes are brilliant, but I'm not sure how you'd go about hunting one. Not seen very many on the canals, but on excursions onto the Norfolk Broads they were everywhere (I hope they still are). You'd see one dive nearby and then look around to see where it has gone and it surfaces what seems like a couple of hundred yards away (probably isn't) and you are left wondering,"How the F*** did he get right over there?"
  9. Yes, I've seen successful herons (you'd be amazed at how big a thing they can swallow), OH has even seen a heron swallowing a rat! he was obviously just battering it
  10. Yes, they have a habit of following the lead boat, don't they. I don't think they are looking for somewhere to hide, they seem to be looking out for fish disturbed by the passing boat since they will fly ahead and sit on a branch to wait for the boat to reach them, then fly on another couple of hundred metres and repeat the exercise. We've had one follow us in that fashion for a mile or so before now (I don't know how big their 'ranges' are).

  12. Perhaps that is all that it is, it was just when I saw the bit in the CRT e-mail about spotting Kingfishers I realised that I hadn't seen one since we came out about a month ago. I'm usually quite good at spotting them.
  13. Having recently received the latest CRT e-mail with a lot of their usual stuff on it, one article caught my eye making me consider what seems to have been missing since we've been out this year, and that is Kingfishers. We have travelled through areas where in the past they have been regularly sighted (myself and OH often joke about the 'daily Kingfisher') but this year? not one. We moored on Tixall Wide for a bit, we've travelled the canal alongside the River Penk, the River Sow, the River Trent and the River Tame (they seem to like areas near rivers usually), all usually good locations to spot Kingfishers but not one to be seen this year. Have we just been unlucky? or have they really been a bit thin on the ground?
