Eurasian Coot

By brownbear1991
I took this photo from one of the hides at Dinton in Wokingham when I was with my Grandad (Maiwand). I waited for ages for the bird to come close enough, and then there was the eternal struggle to get it to look the right way.

But I got there eventually...I hope you like it.

Great shot Vicky. The Coot is a difficult bird to get right, being pretty much the same colour all over, but you have managed to get some fine detail in this birds plumage.

Welcome to the waiting game Vicky, looks as though you had a good time there. Nice detail on the blacks and a nice pose
