Moorhen Heaven

Brave Moorhen Chick!

I start and end each day by feeding our feathered family which grows daily in number.

So far we seem to have only lost one duckling as all the others have survived. The mother moorhen is fantastic feeding her young with tidbits throughout the day. Even though they are growing at such a rapid rate they look almost ready to feed themselves. They often walk in lines like small soldiers but one is a rebel and constantly wanders off alone  which drives his poor Mum nuts! Here he is on his own again trying to see what I am doing with my camera. I was taking photographs of flowers at the time!
