|Eurasia Coot (Fulica atra) sitting on late May eggs. The Coot has claw-like lobes rather than webbed feet which helps when walking along or through the reeds in their favoured habitat. They are vegetarian and often dive for better weed.|
Pairs are very territorial when breeding but develop into flocks in winter.
