Avian activity

There hasn't been a lot of boating activity near the mooring over the last couple of weeks but the blackheaded gulls and herons have been extremely active. There are three herons on this stretch of river and they are very territorial, spending most of the day flying up and down, chasing each other off and screeching very loudly!

I expect things will change on the boating front this weekend and there is a regatta nearby where it will be interesting watching the big river cruisers - let's hope there's some good wind. However, about four boats had broken masts last weekend in the very strong southwesterly wind!
