A morning on the harbour

A delightful morning with a school group on one of the Bristol Ferries. We were exploring the Floating Harbour environment - mainly the man-made part but naturally I was sharing the wildlife and plants to be seen! The cormorants were showing well with one or two popping up from under water right by the boat to the delight of the children. As we sailed past the Arnolfini a few coots were feeding - an unusual sight in the harbour (no doubt also displaced by the cold weather) - and four cormorants, some now in summer plumage, were standing on the jetty. The class were really engaged, busily taking notes, drawing down things on their maps and enjoying the smells, sounds and sights of the Bristol Floating Harbour!
