The Dabchicks in the park have had at leat a couple more chicks. I couldn’t really see them just took some photos.
Dabchick & chick. Only one chick at the moment but the adult’s partner seems to be stuck on a nest.
After being driven off their previous nest by coots the dabchicks are back in Victoria Park. Yesterday we saw a change over at the nest and perhaps an egg.
Note the dried bramble(?) right in front designed to confuse my auto focus.
There are now 3 chick and 2 unhatched eggs in the dabchick nest in Victoria Park.
We have been watching a pair of dabchicks in Victoria Park pretty much every day during lockdown. Today we saw the first sign a a hatching, a wee foot coming out from under a parent’s wing.
