Little Grebe, hiding...

Observation - Little Grebe, hiding... - UK and Ireland. Description: This little grebe was in a clear patch of a frozen flooded quarry; when it saw me it dived, but had nowhere to go because of the ice. It therefore surfaced showing only its head, and watched me. It stayed like that for several minutes before I moved off

This little grebe was in a clear patch of a frozen flooded quarry; when it saw me it dived, but had nowhere to go because of the ice. It therefore surfaced showing only its head, and watched me. It stayed like that for several minutes before I moved off so it could surface properly, which is just what it did. I've never seen one do this before.
