The ballet of the Little Egrets
What looks like a ballet is a successful method for easier catching fish. By running around into swarming young fish- you can try that barefoot -these react in wildly disorder, which makes catching prey easier for the Little Egrets. These have arrived from their breeding areas in south Europe already again to spend the winter here. In the shallow water of the lagoon of the Playa de Sotavento de Jandía one can observe them searching food, on which they often go in groups.
Many kinds of migratory birds are already back from the breeding areas and the plants are worth to have a view on their survival strategies - see the two following photo pages.
