Walking the lily pads (Fulica atra)

AAP

One of our favourite walks was along the Chichester Canal; this is actually the very end of it, where it emerges into the Chichester Marina.

At that time the canal wasn't navigable all the way, but they were working on it. Because there was no current in this area, water lilies had grown more-or-less right across the water and I found this Coot walking the pads with her brood (I could only get the one in though) and it looks like she's shouting to the others to keep up LOL.
