Photographer's Note

The Great White Pelican, Pelecanus onocrotalus, is a
large bird weighing up to 15 kg. It eats mainly fish but doesn't dive for them like many other pelican species; it scoops them up in its huge sac bill. It also preys on gannet and cormorant eggs and chicks. It's a very social species and often flocks together. It can live up to 50 years.
