Moorhen chicks

 

Of the original fourteen chicks that were hatched on their island-nest, only half are still alive.

 

They follow their mother obediently, but since she doesnnot know how to count, she  does not miss the laggard when it falls exhausted by the way.

 

By now the dangers of the early days are passed, and so these seven chicks  are likely to become full-grown moorhens.
