Reader Sheral Wood took this picture of a coot standing on a piece of cardboard at the Red River Nature Area in Loscoe.

Sheral lives in High Street, Loscoe, near the venue.

Red River is on near land associated with Loscoe Manor, which was demolished 1704 and belonged to the ancient Draycott Estate.

The name Red River probably originated around 1791 when a copper works was operating nearby.
