Many thanks to everyone who C&C'd on my cute coot chick yesterday, I'm so glad that you weren't too mean about his looks as I really think he's adorable. I would especially like to thank CarolG, Fred263 and Nigeve1 for their valued user awards.

Today an image of 4 spoonbills who seem to be waiting for something (the bill perhaps?)! I hope you like them!
