Author's notes

Two eggs have hatched, one chick is much bigger than the other and getting fed constantly. The other, so tiny, kept falling into the water, then scrambling back onto the parents back. Other parent bringing food back to nest, but each time had to look for chick which had gone back into the nest. Quite humorous. My apologies for poor quality of pics.
