Fascinated by coots!

 

Below the bridge at Abingdon, almost against its wall,

two coots have build their nest and three eggs have been laid within.

 

They are good parents.

Mother coot sits on the nest hour after hour.

Father coot finds rushes and reeds to reinforce the nest before the eggs hatch.

Together they prepare a home for their young.

I hope they hatch out before we leave Abingdon!
