    Friend or Foe

    I'm not so sure my first thought about this image was correct, in that the Eurasian Coot was admiring himself. I've a feeling he may think that's a rival, as the next few images in the sequence showed him diving, and I really do believe he was trying to chase away the intruder LOL.

    Not quite a home bird

    At Lake Seppings was this Eurasian Coot, would have made me feel right at home, except this is the Australian subspecies LOL. Think they look good wherever they are - shame he's got his remarkable feet hidden from view. Sorry I've not been around too much, I was a finger-breadth away from...

    Up early so I went out for a wander down to the river front to see what else had risen. On the grass in front of the ferry were a Maned Duck and Eurasian Coot grazing companionably.

    We re-located downstream in time to have lunch at Mannum prior to a boat trip in the afternoon. We also wanted to check out the boat and where exactly to go. Had a short chat with the owner who was expecting us, so all OK. Another lovely lunch was had in the town. I couldn't resist taking this...

    Against the current

    I've never noticed 'our' coots having a red eye, so guess this must be how to id the Australian subspecies? My nephew is arriving this afternoon, so I'll not be around much for the next couple of days. I've not seen him for a few years, not even for my sister's funeral last year sadly.
