Spring Summer Cruse 2015 ❻❹

Winkwell Swing Bridge to Lower Ickneld Way Bridge.

Date 27 Aug 2015

Overnight the weather was overcast with a little light rain.

Morning: Early breakfast and an early start, there were a few boats on the move. After yesterdays downpour most people seemed to be having a day off. So most of the boats that passed us yesterday we passed today.

Afternoon: Stopped for lunch, but the weather was holding up and the occasional boats coming the other way were setting the locks in our favour. It was a steady plod until 5pm when we decided to moor up for the day.

Evening:  Television watching after a visit to the nearby pub.


Birds: Wren, Carrion Crow, Blackbird, Mallard, Mute Swan, Long Tailed Tit, Coot, Moorhen, Cormorant, Canadian Goose, Kingfisher, Grey Heron, Wood Pigeon, Buzzard, Black Headed Gull, Swallow, House Martin, Jay and Green Woodpecker.

Butterflies: Common White, Small White.
Bats: Pipistrelle,  Daubentons,
Dragonflies: Four Spot Chaser.
