Grebes Feeding Their Babies

This is the heart warming moment a mother grebe takes her newborn chicks out for their first ride on the water on her back – and even catches them dinner. The fluffy young were getting hungry and eager to explore so were treated to a trip along the river by their loving mum. So they hopped on board her back and went for swim. The tender act was captured by keen photographer Richard Stead who painstakingly followed the grebes for weeks.
