In pouring rain on 31/10/22, I was at Nerang Pool.  On the 21/10/22 I had seen 3 Purple Swamphens with 5 tiny baby ones.  On the 31st the same ones were in the same area.   One of the adults walked away from the group towards the Pool.  Immediately all the baby ones rushed to it and they all squashed under the adult, presumably in an attempt to keep dry and warm. This stopped the adult from moving for quite some time.
