the four chicks were moved by the adult yesterday over behind the pelican log I watched the process from a different area to others

They went down the side on the office side towards cygent hide just prior to where all go down to the water edge they crossed the water area to behind the pelican log

The parents would fly a little make some noise a couple of times and the chicks would follow stopping for a quick snack on the grass area.

Same process was followed to get them across the body of water
