Coot chick - Fulica atra

Photographed at Slimbridge WWT _ wild.

Please can you sign this petition to stop the proposed M4 over the Gwent Levels. I feel strongly about this because it is a place I visit a lot. The damage to the Gwent Levels along with Magor Marsh and the Newport Wetlands will be irreparable!


Please look at my website bobswildlife.co.uk. There is a photo of a Oystercatcher,  and  the  Great Spotted Woodpecker (female) by Callum in the 'Guest photographer'

  2. Hi Bob and what a little beauty, Mums looks very proud. They always make me laugh when swimming, without webbed feet they work so hard to go a very little way. Great post, all the best John

  7. I've seen a zillion coots in my day, but never a chick--- I'm reminded of a turkey vulture- in a nice way. What a cutie.
