quick to learn important stuff.
People mean breadcrumbs.

    1. Thank you, Sherri 🙂 I’d been waiting patiently for the chicks to appear, having seen their nest under construction on the islet in the centre of the pond earlier in the Spring.


    1. I think they know they’re beauties, in a birdbrain sort of way. Chicks only have to hear all those “aww” sounds from us humans, to feel fuzzy inside, as well as out, but on an instinctive level that stops them fearing us!

  1. Ahhh, how cute! I love moorhens, their clumsy walk and attention-grabbing call. No babies here yet, but they’ve started nesting. I’m a sucker for being mugged for my lunch by birds – it was two swans, a horde of pigeons and a seagull last week (not all at the same time!)
