Coot’s nest on Grand Union Canal near Paddington

Coot's nest

Coots build floating nests out of twigs and frankly any old rubbish they can pull out of the canal. They usually attach their nest to something like a branch to prevent it from floating away. Coots seem quite happy to make use of anything they find and this bird has made her home on polystryene packaging attached to the side of a narrowboat.

But last time I drove past I’d swear this coot’s nest didn’t have a staircase out front.
