Great Crested Grebes, Podiceps cristatus, amongst Amphibious bistort, Polygonum amphibium.
Pearly King and Queen
With swirling rhythm, flicking heads
They court and dance on bistort beds
As bubbles spray and sprinkle pearls
Golden neck plumes shine in whorls
Soon the babes on backs will ride
Stripey fluff-balls, sunnyside!
