Great Ouse Progress
Out travels have continued as we film along the River Great Ouse and its tributaries. We’re reached the navigable limits of the Relief Channel, the River Wissey, the River Little Ouse and the River Lark.
We’ve also visited Cambridge, and the three navigable lodes – Wicken, Burwell and Reach.
This year we’ve seen more grebes with youngsters on their backs than I remember from previous years.
Our progress has been helped by guest crew – Sara and Stephen – and we would have had further help from Lucy if the weather had held a little longer.
The glorious weather allowed us to reach St Ives and St Neots.
We should reach Bedford in the fine weather forecast for tomorrow.
