Today we stopped for lunch beside a field that was being mown. Six huge Buzzards were circling around the tractor hunting for whatever small mammals were being disturbed.
As we came through one of the bridge holes - sorry can't remember which one - the towpath had been recently rebuilt and looked like it had been planted with wildflower seeds as a stretch of about 100m was full of poppies, daisies etc. If only the rest of the overgrown towpath vegetation was this pretty!
Since we came down the Oxford Canal back in early May the cottage at King's Sutton Lock has been put on the market. It's getting new fencing a has a new life-ring and is up for sale at £495,000
