Island of Dreams

Popeye and Penny have eased up on their offspring with the weather being so unpredictable, but the separation has already taken place, it's all a question of when they decide they don't want them in the river anymore.

Meanwhile the cygnets are being allowed to sleep and rest on the island of their birth as often as they like. 

The high tides last week have ensured that the moorhens and ducks have been sharing the place too. 

The dipper has also been working the shallows around Merryton. Today saw a young year old cygnet trying to join our lot, only to be chased away by Popeye, heading off in the direction of Auldearn.
