Our most recent foreign trip has been to Romania where we spent a good part of it in the Danube Delta. First of all, we stayed in the southern end which is quite reedy and marshy before going on to the main river channels. In the main river we travelled by boat, taking our pictures from that platform. We have very many pictures to sort but I thought that a Pelican would best characterise the Delta.
There are two - the White Pelican which feed cooperatively and the Dalmatian which is a bit more solitary - especially when feeding. This is a Dalmatian in the process of taking off from the water.
