Moorhens again

I went down to see the moorhen and her chick again; however, rather than there being just those two, there are five moorhens living in the pond: two adults and three chicks. I managed to take a better picture of one of the adults:

The other adult and the three chicks had already disappeared into the reeds. I tried to be quiet as to not disturb the moorhens but they have strong senses and are usually gone before I'm even close to the water (this was taken on my main camera's maximum zoom).
