[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Australian Coot. Fulica atra.

More commonly called the Eurasian Coot but as ours arrived here from Australia that is the name we give them.
They live in Europe Asia Africa and Australia and are about 36 42 cm long.
Nests are built of dead reeds and grasses in which they will lay up to 10 eggs.
Both sexs are strongly territorial durring the breeding season.
The Coot are ominvore and will eat small live prey eggs from other water birds and algae.
In times of food shortages they will peck their young so they stop asking for food and starve or injure them.
