My brother was in Regent's Park, London, last week and was very excited to send me a photo of a coot with a white feather. He mentioned several of them seem to have white wing tips that are mostly hidden when the wings are folded.
Naturally I quizzed him about moorhens, as they all have the white feather, but he claimed there were nearby moorhens which he could compare to, and they had a different kind of white streak.
Has anyone else seen 'Number 7' or their descendants? Am I missing something? Is this marking more common than I was led to believe?
