Raiding Ron’s Ground Again

Saturday 2nd June, me, Mick and Steve co – owners, got to the Marina just gone 8am but unable to leave until 8-40am due to lack of water, when at last we cleared the creek we set a course for the Island Hopper’s hunting ground again. However today the Charter fleet were evidence and the Hounds were not playing, too many boats. We had one Hound during the flood and that was it. Then as the tide eased a sea breeze developed and brought with it a thick sea fret which closed down to about 50 yards visibility, we heard engines starting and going away, it got very quiet, but then we could hear the unmistakable chipping of Terns. With Radar on we could see them about ½ a mile away, so we upped the hook and went to look for them.
We found them




and the sounder found these


and they turned out to be these


there must have thousands of them, and we had great fun with the feathers for about an hour or so but only kept about 10 that got up to the size limit, but what a great sight


and encouraging to know that they are getting more numerous

Nearly but not quite, we were not in any danger from Gannets, only one in evidence, but talking of Gannets the Irish ones are even bolder they go "in" after jelly worms.
