This morning, I returned to Ferry Meadows to get a better look at last evening’s Shags. But, alas, there was no sign. I returned to the scene of my spring vigils, outside the café overlooking Gunwade Lake, and hoped for the best in the strong NW wind. There were two highlights: a very close fly-by from an adult Hobby, which whizzed past and low over the lake, before powering up like a rocket to chase Sand Martins. And also an Otter which swim very close to the shore. It is always a good day when you see an Otter!
