Spring Summer Cruise 2014 ❺❻

Rugby VM to Hawksbury Junction (Sutton Stop)

Overnight the weather was quite blustery.

Morning: The morning was taken up with shopping to restock the boat. Then it was time to settle down for Formula one qualification.

Afternoon: It was late in the afternoon before we resumed our cruise. Some late sunshine was interspersed with the odd light shower of rain. The wind began to pick up the later into the afternoon we went.

Evening: Early evening we arrived at Hawkesbury - We moored up away from the junction as we expected that the visitor moorings would be full. A quick walk with the dogs confirmed our suspicion. (We moved down to the visitor moorings the following morning) The wind started to abate as we moored up.  Dinner booked at the Greyhound for tomorrow.


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

Butterflies: Meadow Brown and Skipper.
Bats: Pipistrelle
Dragonflies: Common Damselfly and Four Spot Chaser.
