I should hate the destructive cockatoos, but now that we’ve taken down our headsail (so they can’t shred the sail cover!) removed all instruments from the top of Totem’s mast (since they wrecked the wind instruments and expensive weatherstation anyway!)- leaving little left for them to demolish- well, they are kinda fun to watch.
At least, until they threatened our friend Warren’s beautiful NEW(ly refurbished) mast, rigging and instruments.
Cheeky buggers. Look at that guy on the anemometer. Yeah, he’s feeling pretty high and mighty!
Tactics have been discussed. They are a protected species.
Siobhan to the rescue: little miss Small But Mighty throws her weight into swaying the forestay, and annoys the cockatoos just enough to convince them change roosts.
The marina rests.
