Seven cute little cootlets keeping us very busy ....

Wednesday, 25 June 2014

Goodness me... and now I have seven to look after!  Its a good job I have some help.... one of them seems reluctant to come swimming.

But they are always hungry!!

And of course I'm pretty busy myself..... as I now have 4 little ones!

And Mr Heron is keeping his beady eye on us - I'm going to have to keep my eye on him!!

Mrs Moorhen has a little one but she is keeping it very quiet.  Both are shy - can you spot her youngster hiding behind her?

And this is a female Banded Damosel having a rest - very different from the male - no band and bright green!!!

Oh I'm so fickle!  Back in the middle of the pool again.  But..... I think I won the 'best nest' competition at the Carnival!!

The cygnets (now three) are having weed spotting lessons from Mum....

The warblers are warbling....

And the cuckoo is cuckooing A LOT!!
