On the beach, walking the surf line this morning.  Chicks are growing fast.

Beautiful behaviour capture Jake. I love the way the parent is busy showing the chick how things are done - and the chick is hanging on the parent's every action in hopes of a tasty morsel!

If this is the same chick as in your previous post then it really grew quickly. Great moment captured.
