We had intended to try and reach Wilmcote as there was a station there for Emma to catch a train back to Lapworth to collect her car. However after 2 1/2 hours travelling 3 miles and 8 locks we decided enough was enough and moored opposite the Fleur de Lys pub in Lowsonford. A pleasant run with no rain, although no sunshine either....yesterday was definitely summer!
Locking is thirsty work
Just opposite our mooring place we have been watching a pair of moorhens diligently making their nest. They have been at work for over 6 hours since we have been here. The male (I think!) goes off to collect twigs etc and brings them back and the female takes them and goes and puts them inside the nest.
