They were down by the possible bird feeder’s house again today, showing off their clean and shiny teenager coats and learning how to dive.

One adult coot and one teenage coot

I love the way the white on their neck and breast just grows gradually grey as it moves up.

There’s a footbridge that goes from Castle Boulevard to Castle Marina retail park. ┬áPast the bridge, there’s a smaller coot nest with what looks like just one brand new baby.

I’m not going to get regular pictures of these new babies, but it’s great to see them!
