Comb-crested Jacana gets another laugh at my expense. Final egg reported gone yesterday. Today - after two hours of nothing at all - noise on water. Yesterday's 'keening' at 'loss' of egg(s) proves to be warning for tiny hatchling.
As I watch from long way off adult (males do the parenting) folds wing over youngster and skitters away acoss the water lilies with two small legs dangling beneath the left wing.
So, did the first three eggs hatch and get similar treatment? To be stashed in thicker cover? No sign of that. But next few days may tell another story.
