The pair of Coot that nested on the pond opposite the junior school have
three new arrivals from the clutch of 8 eggs.
One of the young being enticed from the nest to feed.
It's said that the white frontal plate on the adult's head is the reason for the phrase 'bald as a coot.'
Looking at the youngster, I'm not convinced it's the only reason.
A pleasant family photograph
three photographs to reflect on -
PS. Can somebody please explain to me what this is all about? It's close to the pond
in the previous photograph, off Greenside.
