Late evening visit to the reserve I was surprised to see a Spotted Flycatcher.

There is lone Coot (male?) sitting forlornly on a partially complete nest. Seems he is unable to attract a mate. Could this be due to the thick mat of duckweed completely covering the whole pond? Anyone any bright ideas as to how to get rid of it? No Little Grebes there either.
