Take your marks, get set .........

These juvenile Coots were hugely entertaining this morning, the Parents were looking after and feeding their brood of four although clearly the youngsters were more than able to dive and find their own weed and consume.

They really are very attractive little birds, more attractive than their parents in my opinion and they were being very inquisitive and coming within fifteen feet of me with little concern being expressed.

Plenty of swimming and walking about in the margins with some vigorous flapping of their developing wings. 

All in all it was quite an intimate experience.
