115/365 Coot offering

On another part of the London Wetland Centre, this pair of Coots were rearing 4 chicks. The adult male was always bringing little bits of food back for the sitting female and the chicks. Occasionally it would bring back extra strips of reed as nesting material.  It would very gently hand it to the female and this is the tender moment of this offering.

Coot, Fulica atra, London, April, 2012.
