Shock Horror! The return of the Terns

I was horrified, crossing to the island yesterday afternoon, to find myself in the company of two pairs of terns, just back from an 8-10,000 mile round trip to the Antarctic, where they over-winter. It's always good to see them, but they are at least a fortnight early, and Lynn is going to have a fit because our raft went walkabout one stormy night in January - and the same pair of terns has been using it as a base each Spring and Summer for the last six seasons.
I have the materials and everything - I just hadn't got around to building the raft, thinking I had until the end of April.
Tomorrow (today..) was going to be a writing day...
