Stand-off at Atlantic Wharf
Stand-off at Atlantic Wharf
The coot on the right had, about 15 seconds previously, attacked one of the chicks of the pair on the left. The chick, which had strayed a bit too far for safety, had swiftly been rescued by one of the parents. The attacker remained for some minutes in the vicinity of the other pair's nest, making occasional aggressive moves towards the nest and the nearby chicks, moves which were immediately challenged by the parents. It then returned to the vicinity of its own nest, about 40 yards away.
