We then made our way back and popped into the Chandrey at Wilton Marina and got ourselves a chimney cleaning brush, oil and filter and some rope for side fenders.
Coming back up through the locks we saw a very colourful and unusual bird. It turned out to be a male Mandarin, which we had never seen before in all our travels on the waterways. It was such a pretty bird, which had bright orange wings which poked up like sails. It was having a go at all the ducks around it.
We also spotted a couple of windlass in the empty canal, so we will be poping back there tomorrow to try and pick them up with the sea searcher.
Football's on again tonight so best stay put.......and Oh Al's just broke a glass so we might be back to the shops again tomorrow.
