Amazing they still have 6 this morning!!
No interactions present.
Considering the awful 'non-spring' we've had thus far, I am amazed that the adults have managed to hatch these so early - and get them to survive to date. Well done mum and dad.
They need encouragement; only a mum and dad could love little ones that look like this! And do they love them? I remember watching a berserk coot 'beating up' a Mute Swan that got too near its babies - successfully too, it chased off the big fella and the swan didn't know what was happening, or what it had done to deserve the humiliation.
I love them and as you say the parents so protective, our nickname for them is punk rockers.
