Tick-knee Chick 19-01-2009

Photographed Dikkop chick - by Wally Wolhuter - Rietvlei, Cape

19-Jan 2009

Remained at the reserve later than usual.

The wind was howling at 40 knots +.

While passing fishing site four, I saw the Water Thick-knee sitting under the trees, and to my surprise, there I spotted two chicks.

As soon as they saw me they scurried under their mother's soft plumage for protection.
