Colour-Ringed Coot (again)
Eurasian Coot, (Fulica atra)
Back in March, I blipped a colour-ringed coot that I spotted on the boating lake in the local park. It was ringed during the severe cold weather on 11th Dec 2010 by Kane Brides.
The location was Southport Marine Lake, Mersyside.
It hung around for a couple of months and then I didn't see it for a few months (presumably, it was breeding) then it reappeared, at first with a mate.
Now, no longer with a partner, he is still hanging around trying to get food from the many visitors to the park. I mentioned this yesterday and today I went back and now offer you the proof of its presence.
