Ducks swimming around in different areas of Nabão River in Tomar

As soon as you approach Nabão River on most areas of Tomar, you can immediately see lots of ducks swimming around. They are part of the environment and at least in this river they are protected species. Many people like to feed them and that’s why they usually swim in greater numbers close to places where tourists and the local population tend to gather or pass by. This set of photos were taken from Rua Marquês de Tomar and Rua Fonte do Choupo.
