Close encounters!
Philine: For sure, many thanks, Ray!
Je suis impressionnée par le nombre de cygnes.
Philine: Ils/elles demandent un deuxième petit déjeuner. Merci bien, Martine!

Those Canada Geese are really serious
Philine: You know them, many thanks, Lisl!
HA! I like your sense of humor, Philine. smile
Philine: You understand my allusion- heel bedankt, Ginnie!

Fighting over food, a popular bird pastime in tourist places Philine..
Philine: Here it seemed to be a love story, fighting over the girl friend! Many thanks, Chris!

"Let the kids play, Philine.... before you know they are best friends again... wink....."
Great pictures. There is always so much to see.
Philine: Haha, dit klopt, Astrid - heel bedankt!
Sourires vers le commentaire ..
Philine: Merci bien, Claudine! Les gents anglaises n'ont pas compris probablement L'allusion?

Philine: Sorry, Alan's comment was deleted suddenly: "Sometimes the birds don't play nicely (a trait they have probably learnt from some humans sad ) The swans wanted food rather than having their photograph taken. Apparently all swans belong to the Queen; I wonder if she visits them?"

You might be right, we see almost daily the humans fighting in verbal and other ways, esp. the politicians. Yes, the swans belong to the Queen, and they might be proud of that. I saw such a lot of swans also in Stratford-on-Avon.
Sweet Swan of Avon! What a sight it were
To see thee in our waters yet appear,
And make those flights upon the bankes of Thames
That so did take Eliza and our James!
(Ben Johnson)
Many thanks, Alan!
Hahaha you made me smile this morning Philine.
Philine: You are the only English human bean who recognises my allusion. BJ promises to leave the EU on "Halloween" Day, what do you say about this date? He should be more aware of his vocabulary IMHO. Many thanks, Bill!

Ha ha ha that is very good Philine. So the shenanigans of Mr Johnson have reached Germany.
Philine: We are fully informed about his political and private life! I'm afraid ...- Many thanks, Chad!

They will be having each other for lunch!
Philine: You have humour - heel bedankt, Louis!
All that water and those two want the same spot! I'm fed up with BJ and his private life, sadly it is the media who keep on and on about what happened last week, it makes the whole exercise seem so trivial when there are more important things we need to know about him and his intentions.
Philine: I understand your opinion. Indeed, there are more important things we need to know. But his words should be a bit more serious, too, are his words "leaving the EU on Halloween" fitting? Many thanks, Brian!
I raised ducks and wanted to call the police many times! Very good!
Philine: Haha, Mary, I thought you would love ducks. Many thanks!
