Went back to check up on the long staying pelican at Yeruham this morning. Finally saw some flight action too as it came in to land and disturbed a Night Heron.
The bird spends a lot of time preening and appeared to have got a couple of feathers stuck in its throat pouch. This is how s/he removed the irritation. . . .
Feathers caught just at the end of the throat pouch.
and there's one feather.....
