I read some reports already of them showing up at the traditional places but this one is from a year ago.
Just processed it now in anticipation.

Nice image of red-necked in breading season plumage Karl. They are common in Italy only in winter unfortunately.

Superb frame Karl. You have captured the interaction beautifully. Both the birds look sharp with good details.

Thanks for the nice comments and thanks for the E.P. title.
Let's hope that they will pose for us and will bring the Horned Grebe friends with them.
