Well this really takes some believing, I went to the boat this morning just to check things over. I noticed a a scratching on the roof of the boat and I thought not the bleeding seagulls again,
This time last year I had a pair of herring gulls who took up residence on my wheelhouse roof. I had a right job with them, I took the nest away once then they came straight back and nested again
I had to put string across the the top of the wheelhouse roof to stop them nesting .
But to my amazement it wasnt a seagull, it was duck and she was laying her eggs as i looked on.
Now Im thinking just how are those little ducklings going to get into the water before the seagulls spot them .
She has just layed another egg.
