Baby bird update

Of the multitude of coot and moorhen chicks, sadly only some seems to have managed to make it through the first month. We saw this beautiful adolescent coot. Still looking a bit fluffy around the edges, but pretty much able to fend for itself. Of its siblings and cousins, no trace.

And then, I felt a tickling on my hand. Luckily I checked first before going “swat”. A dragonfly had decided it liked me a lot.
