Intercepted at sea

The Delicate

Sorry Sarah, this one may have been on its way to you but it was attracted by the wall light in the dining room of a small ship travelling from Milford to Ilfracombe on Sunday evening.  The passage was in the face of strong southerlies so it was released on the Devon shore next day.
You can imagine that passengers and crew were either under-whelmed or bemused by this event  although the galley slave did volunteer the fact that there had been an owl on board the previous week; that might have elicited more interest I suppose.
