The Slender-billed Gulls presented us unforgetable moments on this afternoon, because a huge flock was fishing right in front of our noses:
"What is the matter here?" the Grey Heron is asking himself in big shock:
And also the Little Egrets felt very much disturbed by the screaming gang:
A Yellow-legged Gull was still trying to put the lagoon in order and to dislodge the Slender-billed Gulls. But no success!
I in contrast was highly excited about, because these elegant Gull are a real feast for the eyes:
Hunting habits soon were clear: one Gull is fishing and all other want the prey!
Are those pink and salmon-coloured feathers not beautiful?
The penetrating calls of the Slender-billed Gulls …
… filled the air of the Salines …
… every time one caught a small fish:
What a bustle!
"Where is the fish by the way?"
"Ah, finally! This fish we'll get from this lucky fellow!" - the chases were vociferous and vigorous.
In the next part I shall tell you, what we experienced at the beach of Monijo, because there Oystercatchers and Whimbrels were expecting us.
