The white pelican is one of the most successful fish eating birds.  The success is largely due to its command hunting behavior.  A group, perhaps two dozens birds, will gather in a curved are some distance offshore, beating the water furiously with their wings, driving the fish before them.

When the water is shallow enough for the birds to reach the fish, the formation breaks up as each bird dip its bill into the water to scoop up its meal.  As the bird lifts its head, the water drains from its bill leaving the fish which are then swallowed.

Mr. Austen said that on Mothers Day and Valentines Day everyone comes to buy plants or flowers and they have to get in extra. Next we looked at the outside bit were they sell plants to go in the garden. They have everything from apple trees and rose bushes to plants in a pond. I like the rose bushes even though I pricked my finger.

Then we looked at the bit where they sell things like fountains and garden benches. They had a stone lion that I really liked. It would look really good next to our front door. Marianne and Nabil had their photograph taken next to a big fountain, with all the water coming out of a fishs mouth.
