Cute Coot.............................................................................. Tatton Park Cheshire

It wasn't just the deer I went to see at Tatton Park yesterday... I always take in the two large lakes.

This little Coot was one of many enjoying the Autumn sunshine on Melchett Mere.

he sure is pretty. we used to call my dad the old coot.. had no idea a coot was a bird... I have worn trifocals for 20 years, I will get new lens for my glasses and just have the top clear glass

Hello!:) Lovely shot! We have friends living in Cheshire, and they took us to Tatton Park to see the deer, about 10 years ago. It has beautiful grounds with many wonderful old trees, (one in particular) and there were many ducks on the ponds. I remember seeing Coots there.

Us birders often pass by Coots as they are so common. Shame really as they are well worth a look and a photograph.
