Can’t believe I am penning this (penning??? How old am I?), but today I saw the fem Grebe emerge from the bushes on the island with 2 humbugs on her back!I have been suspicious for a while , but common sense would not allow me to speculate…guys , it’s mid AUGUST!! Well , let’s hope that LBBGull doesn’t get ’em.He got most of the rest! Here’s a pic of the male bringing a fish back for them-sadly , they didn’t emerge for a pic of what must be one of the latest broods on record.
Meantime , Sue spotted a large rat vanishing down a drain outside the M-Jones house and I saw one on the beach. Yuk!
