Alas and alack, the chick seen trotting along with  a  parent  has disappeared overnight . An inquisitive little critter , it was coming along in leaps and bounds . Recently a close up photograph [below] was  taken  of its  fluffy feathers, some of which  had  turned curly .
This morning there was no sign of the  chick , its parents showing signs  of distress , wailing , running  about ,vainly searching ...later , one of  the parents, a  worm in its beak, was seen   running about , as if looking  for the chick , occasionally stopping ,  calling out .  It came to the kitchen back door  and the Little Darwin den , still with the worm .
