The 'Piebald' Coot

With very few gulls present at Wilstone Reservoir this evening (Sunday 4 October) I resorted to looking at the Coots. Amongst the large number present off the car park steps was the piebald individual, previously present on Tringford. The above pictures don't really show how distinctive the white feathers are on the head and breast and make it look like a moulting juvenile. A 1W/female Red-crested Pochard was also present amongst the coots. (Dave Bilcock)
