    I like how they don’t look affected by your presence at all. And yes, I would have tried to get that feather too!

    They were indeed preening all-at-once, I tried to get a couple of profile shots but they were too busy to co-operate. The bicycle path is some metres up the bank behind a post and rail fence, so they are quite used to humans at that distance. Climbing over the fence would likely have caused them to scatter, not withstanding the risk of slipping on the grass and ending up in the murky depths.

    the murky depths

    When I was growing up, I’d often go for walks along the Canada-goose-infested pond. It wasn’t falling into the murky depths that had me worried… But it can’t be that different from ibises!
