Where is everybody?
We cruised from Skip[ton to Silsden yesterday and, apart from a boat we caught up with and shared the swing bridges with, we didn't see another moving boat.
After an entertaining evening in the Kings Arms where it was acoustic jam night we pottered down to Riddlesden today. This time we didn't even have someone to share the swing bridges with. Not a soul is moving on this stretch of the L&L canal. In a couple of weeks it will be the waterways festival at Skipton: I hope there are a few boats around by then.
There is also a dearth of Kingfishers this year according to she who must be obeyed.
However yesterday we say our first duckings of the season: tiny and striped like bumble bees messing about in the water.
Today it was the the turn of the Greylag goslings to show themselves.
I was so busy looking for fellow travellers that I took no photographs so here is a picture from RSPB or a Greylag Goose.
