A fortnight ago I was at the Lagoon, and saw a few ducklings, and a coot on a nest. Today I needed a wee break from my exam study, and headed back there for another look-see.
(One dear mother duck was even trying to keep eleven youngsters all in one place at the same time!)
I wondered whether I would see the coot that I had seen sitting on a nest last time.
The adults were both very active, diving underneath the water repeatedly.
They came up with aquatic plants all over them, and then fed the young.
