I suspect nest making.

Great photo, however I would be concerned with whatever is wrapped around one of the bird's beaks

"You will keep fiddling, I told you to get a man in to do the wiring"
This is the kind of picture that I like David.

Derek,I believe they offer one another gifts..it's all part of the mating process.

Well done David a fantastic picture!

Fab picture David.
Nothing to worry about Derek. This is the ritual presentation of nesting material as part of the courtship display.

Thanks Guys,not having courted a great crested grebe, I didn't realize the significance of it.So it's just the same as humans behave it's all about gifts
