A Coot family

On a recent visit to Leighton Moss I came across this family of Coots,
                                           First there was one parent with two chicks.

Then there was three chicks

More like seventies punk rockers.






And then there was 4, with both parents in attendance, Coot parents do a good job of sharing the responsibility of rearing their young.


Hope you enjoyed them,  Thank you.
