Even though our home canal ( Erewash ) is not one of the most popular canals to cruise, it's great to see C&RT have not given up on it. I remember the water voles being present when we first moved into the area in 2004, and up to 2 years ago they were present in the Nottingham canal which ran parallel with the Erewash. Well done C&RT for caring. I will be making a donation.
Here are my pictures for today. With the temperature having fallen to -4 last night we had ice on the canal again. Made the swan, who comes for his breakfast everyday, struggle to reach the window.
