There are a few small ponds near my house - and I like to keep an eye on what is happening on them. Of course, lock down made that rather difficult. During a recent (post lockdown!) trip out I found this family of Eurasian Coots (Fulica atra) occupying the bank-side grass.
The chicks are delightfully ugly - with punk hair styles and huge feet!
I think that the pale tip on the beak is an "egg tooth" which would suggest that these little ones had not long come out of the shell.
The birds seem to be benefiting from the scraps from the numerous picnics that were going on around the edge of the pond.
