A wonderful bird the pelican

It's beak can hold more than its belly can.
Yorkshire Geordie

That was a poem by the magnificent Spike Milligan:-

A wonderful bird is the pelican,
His mouth can hold more than his belly can.
He can keep in his beak
Enough food for a week
I don't know how the helican.

I would certainly like to see the magnificent thing in the flesh, I wonder if it may be flying eastwards to Devon.  

That,s a fair size wingspan
