The brains of twenty mussels

Yes - it's Bananacoot!



Quite simple this one. Apple cores and banana skins get chucked in the river when I have finished with them. Gulls ignore apple cores and everything ignores banana skins.



Except coots.



They go wild for an apple core and are quite amusing when they peck at them in the water and they bounce back onto their heads. And yesterday, a pair went wild for a banana skin.












I've even seen them tackle a floating orange. Now that was funny.
Look, if you had a patch like this one you'd watch coots far too much aswell.

For a Coot that's probably prime nesting material.

They are idiots.
