Great Crested Grebe building a nest and mating

The last year in Spring I visited the Inn River together with Stefan for some wildlife photography. I was able to take some picture of the great crested grebe in their mating procedure. This was the second trip last year when I had the luck to witness this ritual. I also saw it on the Danube River near Linz where I was able to take a better Video and pictures because of a better light situation.

Check out the video in the bottom section of this arcticle!
