When I walked to work today, I thought that a heron or another predator had got to them, because the nest was empty.

The empty coot nest

But I was wrong!

The babies are old enough now to go swimming, so when I thought they were gone, they were just off for a swim.  There are at least five, but other people have told me there are seven.
