Arrived with Dave and Colin at Rugby Station just in time to see LMS Class 5MT 4-6-0 no 44932 being brought in to platform 6 and prepared for her journey hauling the Cathedrals Express Rugby to Sailsbury steam special at 7:15am.. Hope she put a smile on some of the early morning commuters faces on their way to London – they did look a miserable lot. Unfortunately the weather was overcast and dull and not ideal for photography.
breakfast we toured the valley with Nuthatch, Great-spotted
woodpecker and family parties of bullfinch before checking on the pond but
apart from 3 Common Tern and 1000s of Swifts not a lot else.
