Cute Coots

I was in London on Tuesday for work, and on the way back I had a while to wait for my train so decided to make my way over to the Regent's Canal which passes just north of the station. Both James and I find it difficult to visit anywhere that we know has a canal without seeking it out. In London it feels a bit like a pilgrimage, heading for that hidden ribbon of calm snaking through an otherwise noisy city.

As I descended the steps to the canal I heard a great commotion of cheeping, and saw a little family of coots happily playing together and being fed by their mother, who periodically dived beneath the surface of the water. Cue gratuitous cute fluffy animal time:
