It was quite cold again last night, dropping below freezing and we woke up to a thick cold mist.
Before setting off we took the dog for a walk along the bank, we had gone about 250 yards when a deer ran straight towards us and only veered off when less than a 100 yards away and then only skirted round us on the field. needless to say I didn’t have the camera with me.
We set off at 10 am and by now it was bright warm sunshine and the cut was dead straight, passing under several bridges, including a railway bridge. We were lucky enough to see a pair of Buzzards very low over the river and also a Barn Owl circling over the river and adjoining fields.
Down at Angle Corner where the 20 foot river joins the Whittlesey Dyke. There it is a very sharp left turn, probably a bit less than 90° and none to wide. We were now back on familiar territory and its just a steady run back to our moorings arriving at 12-30 pm.
