No not mutinous crew - but our feathered friends!! We were about half way between Madeira and La Palma when this monster invaded our privacy!
Not only did it land on the boat , but we couldn't get rid of it. As many of you will know I have an aversion to birds. So I cunningly hid at the chart table. Sat quietly reading my book , the stupid thing flew into the cabin and landed on my head!!!!!!!!!!!!
The brave crew (Corrine and Mikaela)eventually got rid of it (after feeding and watering it) only for another one to arrive and then a third one!
However, by nightfall they had all left us so we were able to contend with the fickle conditions during the second night at sea on our own!
