Young Moorhen
Comments(1) # Young Moorhen london e10

We've already seen that the young of both the Moorhen and Coot have a red colouring on their beaks that might suggest they're going to grow up to be Moorhens. Obviously the Cootlets lose this colouring on the way to becoming an adult but bizarrely, so do the Moorhens......this is a young Moorhen and we can see that it's lost its youthful red colouring but not yet regained it for adulthood.e.
