While the pigeons looked for food on the bank, an adult coot swam in the canal with two youngsters. One of the chicks was obviously older than the older one, having already a white belly and being bigger. A man threw a piece of apple near the coots. Immediately, a herring gull dived to catch the apple. Also immediately, the parent coot drove away the herring gull.
Meanwhile, the pigeons kept looking for food.
Domestic pigeons in various colours.
Sometimes, many birds flew away, leaving only one.
We continued, along another canal. There, we met two herring gulls. Maybe one of them was the gull we had seen earlier with the piece of apple and the coots.
Maybe the bird on the left is the male of this couple; and the bird on the right the female (females being a bit smaller in this species).
We arrived at the carnivorous plants exhibition. So, stay tuned!
