[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
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.
