Saturday 27th July 2013.

It was already warm for the early bike-ride and, being Saturday, not too busy, traffic-wise, along the roads.
Riding a bike along the canal tow-path, more or less daily, gets you familiar with the area and one point you notice is: the amount of footballs floating along the canal.
In picture two there are two footballs hidden by the bull-rushes. There is a red football, in the distance, in picture three.
There’s also a lot of general rubbish floating about in and on the canal water. (The green stuff is Duck-Weed – harmless but it cuts-out the light from the water = no oxygen = fish etc. die.)
Some of the footballs are nowhere near ‘habitation’. The canal water is stagnant – the footballs can’t drift along. But, they are there.

    Stagnent water also breeds skitters, I think – yuck either way!

    Great photos and am really enjoying your site – thank you, talented gentleman!
