I've kept an eye out at the pond, for our chick (which I haven't seen again) - but an adult bird has been sitting on the 'makeshift' nest - refurbished, which now looks robust and protecting. I was amazed and delighted the birds were attempting another family.
They were very timid and avoided being photographed on, or near the nest. This morning I found the little bowl of twigs empty and no sign of Moorhens. I feared another crisis. Very skittish ducks paddled past, concerned about my presence. I thought it best if I made my visit short. Then I heard the smallest peep and caught sight of a little black pom-pom floating on the water. Then another, and another.
They were very active, foraging and clambering into the reeds. Then mum appeared and took them off out of sight. What a delightful encounter and what a miracle is nature.
