I was looking at this nest today and saw no young only the pair of adults - there was another coot nest much futher down the river - so I take it the young have been predated?
A bloody Hobby! FFS! It won't come back, as there are no hirundines or dragonflies to eat. I am as gutted as Frank Lampard. Truly, truly pissed off. A Hobby in the patch, and I missed it. Gutted.
And as for the Coots, that really is bad news. I'll be back, but what I'll have to show only the patch will tell...
