Pics - Valentines Park

Well it does look as if the Valentine Great Crested Grebe parents are definitely withdrawing from their chick. Today, the two adults were being very much "together", swimming about on the Boating Lake. The chick was busy swimming all over the lake too, but not once did I see him attempt to approach his parents- although as usual he was making his continual-pathetic!- cheeping.
Twice, when the adults were in the centre of the lake, he passed them by without taking any notice of them...(see pic).
I'm also attaching some pics of a pretty hybrid(?) white/grey Goose, who wason the shore.
