A common bird,but interesting to watch them courting and trying to start a nest on the roof of a houseboat. There are plenty of more natural and more peaceful sites around locally, but they were persistent, despite being shoo-ed off by the human occupant on numerous occasions. The male (I think) seemed to be presenting the female with bits of seaweed and brightly coloured nylon mooring rope.
