Who gives a Coot!

De Auld Coot - Fulica atra
 Sort of silly to think of... but this bird is rare on Fair Isle and in Shetland.
Originally found by Mairi & Triona Thomson 
It's a first of the year for Me, Fair Isle & Shetland. 
This is my 2nd or 3rd sighting in 6 years.
Mostly seen in winter or late spring on Fair Isle. 
Most visiting birdwatchers would be lucky to have this on their Fair Isle List.
