We were watching the sunset one evening on a beach in Perth, and suddenly I realised that the people fishing in the evening were being observed by some very large birds! We don’t see Pelicans in England, apart from in Zoos, so it was great to see them in the wild
In fact any time they caught a fish the pelican would rush over and ask for it! Sometimes they were lucky..
Large, but fast moving when a fish is in question

Having seen them once, we then started seeing them everywhere!
