Massive crop!!

This nest is clearly visible from the path, I think they nested a little early after a few weeks of unseasonably warm weather so the reeds haven't grown enough to hide them this year. The bird on the nest was turning the eggs just the other day so they can only be a few days old. They weren't out for long, just enough for a bit of a nest tidy :)
Briliant - instant fav!

@bluefirebucket Thanks Mick
@newbie Those are Coots. I was as close I could be without disturbing them but this is still cropped a lot from the original.

Have heard of Coots, by never seen one: these are the benefits of 365 project one gets to see things and go places where we otherwise might not ever get to see or go, plus the opportunity to interact and communicate with some wonderful people all over our World!!
