This river is a delight to cruise on. Loads to see and plenty of wildlife. Mind you, get a bit of rain and the water rises very quickly, but equally levels drop to normal just as quick. No rain was forecast for today so no worry's there. At Cossington Lock Ian found more cut logs in the hedgerow. Below him were two fisherman fishing the weir stream and I don't think they appreciated some of the smaller branches raining down on them as Ian rummaged through the cut branches.
I happened to see them and apologised about disturbing their fishing but they laughed it off saying we obviously felt the need to gather more firewood.The next photo was of the weir stream.
Luckily these locals were friendly but not so sure about the statues or bullocks below the lock!
