It dropped to -7.7c overnight, and the fog ensured everything was covered in hoar frost.

It also shows that side pond dredging that was supposed to happen last year could do with some quality control...

I must say there was a vlogger pictured you two waiting with a bucks fizz in the lower pound before lunch. 

Hope you didnt stay there for the night....

We came down Watford during the Beast from the East to escape the Leicester Line before it closed in February.  You don't normally notice that the lock chambers are tapered and wider at the top than the bottom, but when the boat goes into the full lock with a load of broken ice, you do. We jammed in every lock and had to flush the boat out.

 

Cold over there, isn't it? It's 10 Celsius here in the County Wicklow, but a large cloud seems to have moved into the garden.

Seemed like quite a long flight for the drone to stay in contact with the pilot.  I wonder if you can pre programme the jumps over the wires.  If not I guess they were lucky.

The editing software allows lots of clips to be joined, almost seamlessly. Filming short clips allows vision of the drone and obstacles such as cables, sticky out branches etc. It also allows you to stay out of the video.

...and keeps you inside the CAA guidelines.

I noticed that too. It also appeared to swerve around some thin tree branches poking out into its path. I was impressed that it detected them.
