Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❸

Willington to Mercia Marina

Overnight the weather quite cool and blustery though we avoided any frosts.

Morning: Up early to prepare the boat for a short cruise back to Mercia. The first meal of the day was once again the full traditional English breakfast. I'm getting used to the idea of a good breakfast again! Followed by several cups of coffee from the percolator. It was late in the morning before everything was finally ready.the trees are full of leaves now and the early spring flowers such as May Blossom fill the hedgerows.

Afternoon: Just after lunch we finally came winded in the winding hole. Then enjoyed a slow cruise back to Mercia where we soon back on our mooring. We passed several other boats on the move. 

Evening: The evening came and we prepared once again to enjoy a meal on board.  It was a much warmer evening and the bats were active once again.


Birds: House Sparrow, Tree Sparrow, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Rook, Jackdaw, Starling, Blackbird, Mallard, Mute Swan, Chiffchaff, Robin, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Pied Wagtail, Coot, Waterhen, Canadian Goose, Grey Heron, Wood Pigeon,  Black Headed Gull, Swallow, House Martin, Swift and  Tufted Duck.
