Algy made a great effort, and managed to collect up all the baubles in the nick of time, moments before the rock was fully submerged by the sea. But what had no doubt been just a wee netting bag for onions or fruit to a human was quite a large sack to a fluffy bird; once he had filled it with glass baubles, Algy found it very hard to lift. There was no way he could fly with his treasure so, bedraggled and exhausted, he started to drag the sack arduously along the beach. Although it was only mid-afternoon the sun was already going down, and he needed to find somewhere to store the bag safely and rest, before it was too dark to see.
