Bob,Não tenho palavras para adjectivar as suas fotos: Puro encantamento!Apaixonantes. Maravilhosas.Abraço!
It looks a bit thorny for a nest. Coots know best.
Yea, I thought that as well.
so very cool looking! GREAT shots, bob!
Se estaba intentando camuflar, buenos tiros, Bob.Saludos.
Ha ha, that's a good one.
Now what's the saying ' daft as a Coot'?...not this one.. it's built a predator proof nest!!...[;o)
Prickled in the end.
Wow that beak is so white it looks painted!
It was, ha ha.
Bob, it looks awful prickly in there! Nesting I think! Nice ones!
I think so Robin.
you'll have to go back another day to be sure Bob; nice photos
Yes, I think your right Carole.
Beautiful images Bob...
Hola Bob una buena toma de esta Focha,no se que decirte pero por estas latitudes alguna Fochas si que empiezan a confeccinar los nidos,solo tendras que seguir durante unas dias el proceso y vcreo que tendras la respuesta.Un abrazo
Looks like a nest to me Bob!
I think it's nesting Bob!!Excellent shots!!Fantastic pictures!!Dimi...
I think it's nestling Dimi.
Maybe they are just practicing. Some birds do that and other build a nest early to entice the female.
It seems that it might not be too early. And the coot would know - better than us anyway. A be prepared sort of bird - and beautiful with it. Though that nest (if nest it is) looks as if rather a lot of padding will be necessary. Or they breed coots tough...
It produces 2-3 per year eggs, so it can be nesting.
Wow, it looks as though the white shield is painted on!
I think it's nesting - GREAT photos, Bob!!
I love their red eyes, great captures of the Coot!
Merci pour tout et bonne continuatioh,;-)
that's one cool bird
Looks beautiful hiding in there.
Stunning set of Coot photos Bob!
We can see the bird only with it's white color beak. Looks beautiful!
Mas bien soy de la opinión de que está ya en el nido. Un abrazo,
Yes, I think there is Miguel.
So sweet to see and what a beautiful and clear pictures. Wonderful that light in the red eye :-)
