Away from Bulking road bridge at 11:15, after my morning run and Meg’s walk. A steady cruise up to the Battlefield moorings near Shenton, arriving at around 16:30. It’s been a fine but overcast day, with a gentle breeze. The highlight of the day was a kestrel swooping across the bow and settling for a second or two on the hedge along the towpath. Too quick for the camera, unfortunately.

The moorings at Stoke Golding are still full, but there was space on the “plastic pontoon” at Sutton Cheney wharf.

Meg got covered in mud (again), playing with another couple of dogs on King Richard’s Field. Got her cleaned up ready for getting muddy again in the morning.

Locks none, miles 11½.
