Another image from the Foxton Locks meet on Sunday. After roaming around the locks we met at the cafe - the perfect spot for sitting in the sun (out of the wind), enjoying a bacon butty and watching the ducks. This is the time of year when the ducks get a little frisky with plenty of males competing for the attentions of a few females. This chap got bitten on the tail end, but no real harm was done.

Pretty much as taken, except for the narrower crop to cut out the brown canal water top and bottom and a liitle bit of the RH side too.
