I went to the park again to look for a Bambi - but I spent so long watching a moorhen working on her nest to acommodate her growing chickens that I ran out of time.
I did get a photo of clouds, though, which I'll go and post on that thread.
I got some cute ducklings too, but here are my Ugly ones, as per Hans Christian Andersen and The Ugly Duckling.

Confusing to me that both the coot and moorhen chicks have red beaks, while the adult coot is distinctly white.
But since one of these was on a coot's nest and the other was being fed by a coot (different lake, probably younger) I am pretty sure they are both young coots.
