My search for baby waterbirds

I went for a walk with my camera on Tuesday, after being inspired by Springwatch I decided to get my camera and go for a walk.

I don’t have the best camera in the world, but I did manage to catch a variety of chicks in the Water Park.

Five baby species in one park isn’t bad! What I noticed was that the coots and geese had two parents whereas the duck and grebe had one parent. Interesting stuff. How I love Spring!
