Farewell Whittlesey mooring..
Ashline lock landing
Joe closing the penstocks of the bottom gate
Heading out of Whittlesey into the open fens. The air was redolent with the scent of cow parsley and May blossom
All along this stretch of the Whittlesey Dyke there were warblers flitting in and out of the reed margins but surprisingly, hardly any swallows.
Here be our turn coming up, a sharp right to Benwick and Ramsey on the old course of the river Nene - left would take us to March.
Himself making the turn..
The 'road to Ramsey'...
Stacks of potato crates, a common site on the fens
My first sight of cygnets this year
Coming into the village of Benwick
Yarwood on the new Benwick visitor mooring.
