Hi sue , Thanks for droppong by, and your comments. All the best, Gordon.
We have those Moorhens in Florida too! Their feet are outrageously huge! Especially on the baby ones, which I've spotted once only. You got some great action pictures!
Thanks Sallie, and thats where I'd like to be right now. Take care, and have a good week, Gordon.

You did, did you, Welcome Home, and all the best, Gordon.
Do you know Gordon that I haven't a single picture of an adult Moorhen. Don't know about you but I find them very shy. And of course they can run like the clappers. Good to see yourswas different.
Hi Phil, Yes they make it slightly easier at Leighton Moss
Hi Phil, Yes they make it slightly easier at Leighton Moss. Mind how you go, Gordon.
Hello Gordon!:) What huge feet indeed! Ha ha, but they stop the Moorhen from sinking in the mud, and the little ones feet are as big as it's body, for the same reason. Like Phil, I have only seen them once before with two chicks in tow. Thanks for sharing your Moorhen sighting, and images.:)
You are so right, there are very many waders with such feet, and on some birds they look so out of place. Thank you for looking in, Gordon.
I really like these birds. Nice shots!
Thank you so much , very kind of you to say so. Take care, have a good week, Gordon.
hahaahLove "explanations"! : ))))
A big thank you to everyone for looking in and leaving their comments, much appreciated, Gordon.
