Spring Summer Cruise 2014 ❻❽

Swarkstone Lock to Willington Winding Hole

Overnight the weather was clear and cool. We had the stove lit overnight.

Morning: Time to turn around and head for our winter moorings. Still a couple of weeks to go before we are due to arrive. Said goodbye to the two amigos as they headed off north for the river Trent and a passage to Keadby then on to Doncaster. 

Afternoon: Arrived in Willington - first job was to fill up with water before mooring for the day. Kept the fire going very low just to keep the boat aired off.

Evening: Television and football highlights. 4-0 another good result for the reds.


Birds: House Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Rook, Blackbird, Mallard, Mute Swan, Greenfinch, Robin, Blue Tit, Pied Wagtail, Coot, Waterhen, Grey Lag Goose, Canadian Goose, Grey Heron, Wood Pigeon, Kestrel, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Black Headed Gull, Swallow and House Martin.

Wildlife: Butterflies: Meadow Brown, Skipper.
Bats: Pipistrelle.
Dragonflies: Four Spot Chaser.
