Spate enables counter revolution

The rain has washed away all the seagull shite and the town looks a lot cleaner as everyone comes back to life and emerges into the Thursday morning sunshine. The spate in the river had an unforeseen consequence for the young swans that had taken over the harbour. The older pair had been moping around between the A96 bridge and the Jubilee. Obviously they couldn’t stay in that area with the spate so they went downstream and ousted the upstarts. Seems the older male has a few marks from another battle but he is back in control of the harbour.
A town centre Herring Gull enjoys the Wednesday evening sky clearing to reveal a town with a lot less white streaks per square inch - for the moment, for the moment. Only two days to go to the Habourfest now, an uncontrollable wave of excitement mounts throughout Nairnshire.
