Seems the Derby Arm rats are still very much in evidence. They have been running along the same route opposite this mooring for as long as we have been at the bungalow, at least 8 years. I remember fishing the point where the Derby meets the Erewash and watching them scurrying along the stonework. This one is not as big as Ratty the one that took up residence in our bow locker in the winter of 2010 so maybe it's a juvenile. Picture quality is terrible so apologies for my poor photography.
Plan for tomorrow is make our way up the Erewash and to our mooring in Langley Mill. Good plan methinks if only the water levels return to normal and we can get off the mud!
Took these photos in the bungalow garden yesterday. With it being so warm we were inundated by bees, bugs and flies.
