We were strolling round Tissington the other day, daughter Ruthie having bought us some wedding anniversary plants from the nursery there, when we were charmed to see this mummy coot, nesting on a very precarious looking bunch of weeds in the big pond. (We also felt rather proud that we had spotted the scene, before John – he has such sharp eyes and is normally so quick to spot anything interesting, amusing or unusual in the bird world.)
At fairly frequent intervals, the father coot swam up with some delicious morsel in his mouth which he transferred to the mother’s beak; she promptly fed the two babies while he paddled off again to find some more for them.
We got married at Parwich Church on 16 September 2016 at 12noon so now are Mr and Mrs Roebuck. We had our reception at Tissington Hall followed on the Saturday with a Garden Party at Orchard Farm. Great celebrations lasted for 3 days. Here are a couple of photos
