This pair of Little Grebes were building this nest yesterday morning opposite the Bandstand. Today it had been destroyed, probably by a rowing boat and the pair were trying their luck nearby.  It is extremely rare for grebes to be successful on the main body of water where rowing occurs, unless it is behind one of the fences that protect a reed bed.
