I have been posting some pictures of the baby birds that had made their home in my kayak a few weeks ago. I have been watching their progress every day, from the one baby on the day that it hatched to 5 happy healthy siblings. To my horror yesterday I found that they had all disappeared! No sign of a struggle though and mum and dad seemed to have gone as well. I guess it was inevitable that they would leave and at least I can go kayaking again!
