Confused water fowl,
Cormorants visiting here,
No river bank roosts.
The river is actually on the other side of the moored boats.
This is the bank behind our mooring, and the picture below
is the field on the other side of the river.
I haven’t done a duck post lately, and the local quackers are really confused.
I have never seen so many white ducks here, and then I cottoned on that they are feathered refugees from the lock side of the river which is still completely under water and there is nowhere else for them to go.
As for the cormorants, we have at least four diving in the marina basins for food.
The water level has gone down from 4.19 metres to 3.9 metres in 36 hours, and all being well, the flood water should recede considerably more before the predicted cold spell which is due to hit us next week.
