Bird in bullrushes

This stupid great bird, that I call a blue coot but I think is a Moorhen was sitting in the top of old bullrushes in the dam the other day when I went to feed the ponies. This is one of my walks, walk with hay to feed ponies. I think I get my weight lifting exercises at the same time.
It is the most impossible looking bird all navy blue and red. It didnt even move away when I threw the hay.

Yes, it's a moorhen - we have them here - pretty unconcerned about people they are. Lovely little sketch
