I met Gav and Andy fishing on the canal bank yesterday morning at 10.35. Gav does a lot of sketching and said he’d like to come round to the Egg one day to look at my work and at the boatyard site. His keep net had a few roach, but the days biggest catch was a fledgling pigeon, fished out after it ditched in the canal.
This morning I saw another floundering in the water and had to hurry to fish it out myself. I anticipate a few more rescues in the days ahead, as more young attempt first flight from our local ‘Kitty Hawk’ bridge.
