The ugly duckling

After the lovely swan I had great fun looking that this tiny chick falling out of his nest and then following mum around, chirping for food.

This is a very young hatchling Coot.

A tiny body, massive feet on stumpy legs, a brilliant red head and stumpy wings.

Here is an older one taking an insect from one of the parents

Sharing some nice weed.
