Pelican FeedingJanuary 18, 2020 in Australia ⋅ 🌧 21 °C
The rain continues to fall so we plan to have a day to do chores, a bit of shopping, some repairs and a lot of washing, but also go and watch the daily pelican feeding at a town called The Entrance, being where the sea enters the lake complex in this area.
We went shopping, bought repair materials and arrived at our new campsite at around 2pm. We usually scrape in just before the office shuts so being at a campground in the afternoon is a new experience for us. Still raining ☹️
While Bun set about getting the washing on, I repaired the smoke alarm, I think I have the better deal. Then to watch the pelican feeding. http://theentrance.org.au/explore/pelican-feeding
This started in 1976 when the local fish and chip shop fed their scraps to the local pelicans. This then developed into a way of monitoring the birds’ health. Some have fishing line/hooks tangled or embedded, injuries from collisions with motor boats etc. While all this good stuff happens, it’s also a spectacle for the public. Being such odd birds, they are great to watch .... unless you don’t like birds.Read more
