Great Crested Grebe with Young
Comments(3) # Great Crested Grebe with Young london e17

So, as promised yesterday, here is the Great Crested Grebe which last showed you sitting on her nest at Walthamstow Reservoirs just over two weeks ago. As you can see she's now got several (at least five I think) striped young chicks. I think you'll agree they're some of the most bizarre looking chicks we've seen yet. Incidentally, as I mentioned in the comments yesterday, the Goldfinch I showed yesterday now has brought young to the garden for feeding and they were the most demanding and noisy young we've had yet!
