A new coot nest on Tinker's Leen

I think the nest might have moved.  Which is nice.

Instead of being on the canal properly, it’s now on Tinker’s Leen, a little stream just to the side of the canal.  This means they don’t have to worry about boats, and there’s plenty to eat around there.

Unfortunately, it makes it harder to photograph, as there are two large branches right in the way.  So even though I have taken a picture of a coot sitting on a nest with another coot swimming by, all you see is some twigs, a duck, and a coot.

But there is a coot sitting on the nest. And that tells me there are eggs.
