Coot, Splashing with Feet

Observation - Coot, Splashing with Feet - UK and Ireland. Description: This is interesting; I've never seen coots do this before (now someone will say they do it all the time ;-)). It put me in mind of the way Little Egrets puggle around with their feet in order to disturb their prey. This coot was at it for several minute

This is interesting; I've never seen coots do this before (now someone will say they do it all the time ;-)). It put me in mind of the way Little Egrets puggle around with their feet in order to disturb their prey. This coot was at it for several minutes, but it didn't seem to be successful.
