I miss the wildlife we use to see at close quarters on the marina, and a little while ago whilst walking the dog for her final wee, I noticed one of the swans sitting on a nest.
By all accounts, she has since hatched 7 eggs, but as is the way with young in the marina, the mortality rate is quite high.
Hubby got the camera this evening and tried to get some pictures of the adults with their babies. There are just four now, but then this could be another pair and the seven babies are all present and accounted for elsewhere.
When I walked Maggie this evening, I took some pictures of some ducks, two of which could be the remaining pair of our migrant three.
You’ll see that the two ranks of marina berths for cruisers behind them are practically empty. This could be because those on brokerage are now in the other basin, therefore freeing up more on the revamped side for berthholders.
Or there are simply no takers due to higher costs.
