Pics - Valentines Park

That Great Crested Grebe chick is a glutton for punishment. This evening he wasagain hovering around one of his parents, cheeping piteously. When he got too close the adult went for him yet again- and off he sped down the lake.... This didn't stop him trying again, but finally he gave up. At first there were two Egyptian Geese on the island and two on the grass nearby. When I was leaving they were all on the grass. They were feeding quite peacefully until a Crow started "cawing" loudly. This alert them andthey started stretching their necks and making guttural noises and thendisplaying to eachother in this way. One Cormorant was on one of the boats.
