It's a shame this can't be a video clip... the adult was swimming pretty fast and the chick finding it really hard to keep up. I'm not even sure this was its mother either as all the other chicks went off in the opposite direction after another Pochard. Male Pochards are, like many ducks, somewhat more exotic looking....I'm not sure why we haven't yet had one here. Canon EOS 5D
