Alphi on the R. Coln

The R. Coln was quite an interesting test for Alphi. Relatively fast flowing and shallow, we were swept along at a good pace, this time untethered and therefore subject to the vagaries of the currents and eddies. We nearly got stuck on one particularly shallow bit but succeeded in moving on without getting wet feet!

A coracle is probably the only form of boat (other than small inflatables) capable of moving here due to the lack of depth in many places, so it was a bit of a surprise to much of the wildlife to see a boat on their river.
