The Coot Family

By Stephen_B
Anybody who follows my uploads will know I do not do a lot of wildlife, least of all birds, because that is done so much better by others, particularly Len, Lillian and Annette, and also I do not possess a long lens.

However, I stumbled across this family of Coots with a nest on the water within range of my 70-200 mm lens, so I thought I would have a go.

Thanks to everybody who voted on my last image, particularly Richard (DicksPics), Bill (Bill Rookery), Walt (WaltKnox), Len (Len1950) and Leo (Leo_Nid)
