THANKS
by: Joy

Thank you so much for helping solve this. I will now be able to tell my friend what kind of bird she photographed on her recent trip to England.

indeed, interesting feet
by: Shoe

I looked up the coot fulica atra as your previous commenter said, and clearly that is what kind of bird it is. Interestingly, when I searched for images, I saw that several pictures of this bird are specifically taken of its feet. You are not the first to notice how strange they are! Thanks for posting. I just found this site today...very fun.

I believe your bird is a Coot, possibly Fulica atra. There are several pictures on the internet and it looks exactly like your bird.
