Broadcast format available at: http://www.stockshot.nl/ - meerkoet - common coot - fulica atra The common coot builds a nest of dead reeds and grasses near the water's edge or on underwater obstacles protruding from the water. Coots lay up to 10 eggs, though usually only 3 survive because of the parents brutal behaviour. They can be very brutal to their own young under pressure such as the lack of food. Coot chicks are engagingly ugly.
