06:07 The Aegir was only visible as a nearly imperceptible ripple at the M180 bridge.
06:16 Nothing to be seen Just South of West Butterwick – only a change in river flow.

06:41 – Trent Aegir – Owston ferry Pumping Station – bowling along quite strongly.
06:45 – Trent Aegir – Just south of Owston Ferry. Appearance much reduced.
