[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Last year these birds bred for the first time in the Maltese islands during this period at the Simar Nature Reserve. This year they may be breeding again. Seen in the picture one of the grebes with full colour plumage. Quite strange at this time of the year.

Hello Matthew,
I didn't know Little Grebes were found in Malta.
I agree that it is surprising to see it in breeding plumage (almost anyway) at this time of year and you show it in a wellcomposed, well lighted and sharp shot. I also like the ripples and the reflection.
TFS, regards, Ivan

Really strange at this time!
See my pictures for confrontations.

Hi Matt,
Beautiful, well captured shot of this Grebe. Ripples make a really nice effect and the colours are just great.
