Dabchicks, adult and chick on water Dabchick and chick on nest
We saw a pair of adults dabchicks feeding 3 very young chicks earlier this week. This evening one adult fishing and feeding a chick, another adult, with a chick peeping out from its feathers, on a nest.

@Miraz whoops, the title of the post, hidden for microblog, is dabchick, AKA Little Grebe. I'll edit the body;-)

@johnjohnston Ah thanks. I had wondered if it was a Dabchick as we have local dabchicks on our little nearby lake.

@Miraz they are great wee birds to watch, so busy. The ones here got a big following during lockdown.
