Just a quick blog while I sort some photo`s for Leamington/Warwick. The Moorhen i pictured with it`s young on the last blog has become to trust me so much to supply food for it`s brood that it has taken to entering the boat.
It did at one time while I was in the galley start to walk part way up the boat towards me.

Maybe you could try to introduce the human kind of bird into the boat now you have enticed the feather kind.

Has she got a name yet? Isn't it a thrill when a wild creature bestows us with their trust? That is just lovely Les.

Hi Andy
Hmmmmm tried that once and it didn`t work out, but they say there`s someone out there for us all so i`ll not give up.

Hi Lesley/Joe
Yes i was quite surprised as Moorhens are usually not to keen on getting close to us humans unlike swans and ducks.
Did have a Robin fly into the boat once after he had picked all the crumbs on the front deck.
