Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❻

Shardlow Lock  to Sawley Marina.
4 May 2015

Overnight the weather was clear, however the temperature remained well above freezing. The fire had stayed in overnight so the boat was toasty warm.

Morning: Up late and I am feeling much better. A leisurely taken breakfast was the order of the day. Cleared out the cobwebs with a walk round the Shardlow park to attend a car boot sale. I did not buy any of the tosh which was in abundance.

Afternoon: A short cruise down to Sawley Marina.  Topped up the water tank and gave the dog her first trim of the season.  Quite busy around the marina with walkers, cyclists and boaters.



Birds: House Sparrow, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Rook, Blackbird, Mallard, Mute Swan, Chiffchaff, Chaffinch, Robin, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Coot, Waterhen, Black Headed Gull,  Arctic Tern, Sedge Warbler, Swallow, House Martin, Swift and Tufted Duck.

Butterflies: Meadow Brown,
