You may remember as a child learning to swim in the swimming pool? It was fun to splash around and play games. On occasion though you would accidentally swallow some water from the pool. That was never much fun, all that chlorine and anything else which might make up the consistency of the water that day!
So it is little wonder that we were taught not to drink from the swimming pool.
Whilst on our wonderful honeymoon in Sardinia we did come across some creatures who did not follow this rule.
Guess who was drinking from the swimming pool
From day one of arrival we noticed periods when birds would flock around and start dive bombing towards our pool. They would keep circling round and drop their beaks to take up some water.
I joked that they were having a belly wash since they were getting wet too.
I took some pictures and a video so you can see what I mean.
