As Fritha grows up, Rhayader and his small sailboat eventually are lost in the Dunkirk evacuation , having saved several hundred men.
The bird, which was with Rhayader, returns briefly to the grown Fritha on the marshes. She interprets this as Rhayader's soul taking farewell of her and realizes she had come to love him.
