Coot Chicks at Last!

I was correct last night about the coot's nest at the mouth of Gunter's Brook.  This afternoon there was fuzzy red head looking out from under its mother's wing.  Young coots are pretty ugly as chicks go.  Young swans are cute in comparison, in spite of the 'ugly duckling' of the story.

On the opposite, north side of the Kennet, further up towards the Watlington Street Bridge (by King's Point) there was another coots nest, this time with two little red heads showing.
