But our first birding trip was 5 years ago. Today the 5th anniversary to the day, Almost. Avocet chicks, Shelduck chicks could be seen from most hides
like this Avocet chick. Looking back through the photos from 5 years ago it looks similar, although images a bit better !

  
The Caribbean Flamingo looking nice


The Greater Flamingos also had young .
Did you know ? 
The backward bending "knee" of a flamingo's leg is actually the bird's ankle. The actual knee is very close to the body and is not visible through the bird's plumage.
