Our river mouth Marbella, where still the Crested Coot is residing, proves to be most entertaining! As well for observing as for photographing.
At times groups of Yellow-legged Gulls are landing there and are enjoying the clear water:
Also the young Gulls are thirsty and furthermore …
… want to have fun and for that ….
… nothing can beat a playful, but also …
… very hearty bath:
"Ghe, how much better I feel!"
And because it was such a joy, our …
… young Yellow-legged Gull continues to splash around:
"Gorgeous!!! Now …
… I again will put my head under water and then …
… I am sparkling clean!"
The joy of this bird was nearly contagious!
Yesterday I made a lot of photos at the river mouth, which I'll show you one by one. In the next report I'll tell ….pssssst ….about the mating of a Mallard couple.
