Three young pelicans have taken their first swim in public in St James's Park.
The trio of great white pelicans have officially moved to the lake near Buckingham Palace.
A gift from the city of Prague, they traveled 800 miles to their new London home and spent two months in a special enclosure as they acclimatised to their new surroundings.
The birds join another three pelicans (which are all over 20 years old) already living on the lake.
