For many species of birds it makes sense to stick close together, especially when there are predators about. Cairn Curran at the moment, is home to a number of large flocks of Eurasian Coots, with the birds feeding on vegetation along the exposed shoreline and in shallow water. The slightest hint of danger will send the flock scuttling from the shore to the shallows, where they will form a tight flock, moving in unison to deeper water. There are numerous predators to fear – Whistling Kite, White-bellied Sea-eagle and Black Kites are around and waiting for the opportunity to strike an unwary coot.
