Thankfully they did not cause much damage this time round and the only evidence of their visit were a scattering of broken branches, tell-tale giant impressions in the sand and their characteristic bowling ball sized calling cards! Why these 2 individuals make a point of swinging past us each time they are in the area remains a mystery but their passive nature makes me think that they genuinely enjoy passing through. Almost like catching up with old friends. They obviously feel comfortable here and perhaps they recognise kindred spirits in the staff and students alike?! Whatever the reason for their visits, I hope they know that they are always welcome and we look forward to their return.
