These photos were taken when the chicks were 1 day old. The upper picture shows both parents feeding the chicks, although a week or so later the mother became the sole provider. The lower left shows the two chicks riding on the mother's back which helps to protect the chicks and makes them hard to spot.
The mother used an artificial nest - for more information on this visit the:
