The Big One (9-3)

Tuesday 29th May 2012

Cromwell Lock.

A cloudy start to the day but it has been warm overnight. We had an influx of tiny flies. However, as they were attracted to the LED lights, I was soon able to suck them up with the dust devil, before retiring for the night.

A good drying day so one for doing the washing and a day of relaxation. We moved the boats around as others left so that we could get access to the power-points. If you visit the visitor moorings here at Cromwell, note that the card readers will chew up your cards rather than return them. We used a card that had three units left on it.

The solar panels have added 37Ah into the leisure battery bank which I think is quite good as we are part shaded under trees and it has been broken cloud for most of the day. Another day where we have not needed to run the engine to maintain the battery bank.

Wildlife: Common Blue Damselfly and Banded Demoiselle. Meadow brown Butterfly. Birds included Goldfinch in good numbers. Swifts, Swallows, House Martins and Sand Martins also in good numbers.
