The Coot (Fulica atra) neither swims nor flies very well, but it can gain quite a high speed on the water surface by using a combination of running and flying. See also:

Wow...I never saw a coot doing this...nice capture.
This year I saw a coot duckling submerge for a long time for(I think) eating something...it was so cute and awesome!

Thanks, Chiara. It's very difficult to get close to the young Coots, but they look almost the same as the Moorhen chickens [link]
