I was after the Coot sitting on the nest and moved a tiny bit closer which spooked her, I do hope she returned - sorry that I frightened her but a lesson learnt for future! I didnt actually get very close, this is a tight crop.
Many thanks for all c/c's on yesterdays upload always grateful for your comments thank you
Thanks to Brian Curtis for spotting my deliberate errorWink tis a coot not a moorhen

We have snow so I wont be venturing far todayWink

Regret Today...

How many times do we say something that
we immediately realized was not the right thing to say?
How many times do we look back
on an event and think, if only I had. . .
How many times do we do something
that we wish hadn't done?

You can't change what has been said.
You can't change a past event.
You can't change what has been done.

Do you call it regret, sorrow, repentance?
Do you think about what might have been?
Do you relive an event the way it should have been?

Forget about regret, and focus.
Focus on today,
not on the past.
Focus on what you can do,
not what you didn't do.

The only thing to regret is
living in the past
The only thing to feel sorrow for is
not living each day to the fullest.
The only thing to do to repent is
to sincerely say, I'm sorry.

Don't live your life
regretting yesterday.
Live your life so
Tomorrow you won't regret today.

Regards Nathan

She'll be back, I'm sure, Ann: and what a super shot her departure afforded you.
I did not realise they laid such a big clutch.

They are a hardy species and quite tolerant, but its a lesson we all learn.

That's a Coots nest Ann - I know the egg colours - well captured though - super detail. Moorhens eggs much darker and bolder markings.
