European Coot

After yesterday's coot-based excitement, I realised I'd kind of left this old coot out on his own. This is a bird I haven't seen here (yet - though I doubt very much I will); European coot.


European coot has no red on its mask anywhere and no stripe on its bill unlike the American or Caribbean versions yesterday. This is an old photo taken through the eagleye 8X lens hence the vignetting.
