Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❷❻

The Burf to Worcester Sabrina Bridge

Date 29 June 2015

Overnight the weather was warm.

Morning: Another leisurely start to the cruising day after the traditional egg bacon and tomato breakfast. It was almost 11am before we were on our way. A steady cruise to Halt Lock where we penned down in company with Nb Cotonwood. Another steady cruise to Bevere lock. On our exit we found a large barge breasted up with a boat that had been either neglected or sunk at some point. It was a real eye opener to see the numbers of sunken boats along this section of the river.

Afternoon: On arrival at Worcester - we decided to stop for lunch on the visitor moorings. Which due to the warmth of the weather we then decided to stay for the night. This is a pay and display moorings at a cost of £4 a night. The moorings are not very good with overgrowth of vegetation and their are some large holes in the footpath.

Evening: This evenings meal was in Witherspoon's for the Mexican night special.


Birds: House Sparrow, Magpie, Carrion Crow, Rook, Blackbird, Mallard, Mute Swan,  Robin, Blue Tit, Great Tit, Pied Wagtail, Coot, Moorhen, Canadian Goose, Kingfisher, Great Crested Grebe, Grey Heron, Wood Pigeon, Buzzard, Cuckoo, Lesser Black Backed Gull, Black Headed Gull, Common Tern, Swallow, House Martin, Swift the highlight being a group of Yellow Wagtail.

Butterflies: Meadow Brown
Bats: Pipistrelle,  Daubentons,
Dragonflies: Common Damselfly, Red Darter, Four Spot Chaser.
