We reach Ballytiglea Lock. The exit of the cut below the lock is a bit silted and I keep close to the bank although considering the drift by the current. This is also a rocky section to Ballytiglea Bridge and in addition to that also a narrow river section.
After the bridge the current decreases. The entrance of the cut at Borris Lock after the weir is narrow, shallow and silted.
We moor above the lock and sun is breaking through the clouds. Willi opens the racks of the upper gate. The lock fills up and Willi closes the racks again. But the water is dropping as the lower gate is leaking.
We spend the evening on deck listening to a bird concert and the babble of water running over the overflow of the cut.
