It's growing. One of the other coots has had two chicks, but it looks like none of the other eggs have hatched. One of the coots had 4 eggs but has ended up with no chicks...

The first hatchling we saw this year. I keep an eye on them when I walk past every day on my way to work.

This coot had a bra as part of it's nest. A few days later it had two!
