UK Canal Path Photos: Part 5

Part five in the series.  As a reminder these photos were taken at the end of May 2009 on the Leeds-Liverpool Canal.  The previous parts of the series can be found below.

Some of the wildlife seen along the path, mostly birds or aquatic animals.  In this case I am not sure what bird species this is, but it is Heron or Egret like. 

The canal bridge actually serves motor vehicle traffic and is on a pivot.  The right side swings around to provide clean passage through the canal, see the street view link above for a better view.

The canal obviously does not just go through idyllic countryside, it does go through towns, cities, and in this case a small commercial district facing an A-class road on the other side of these buildings

Until next time.  If you would like larger copies of any of the pictures in this series please send me an email or add a comment and I will gladly provide.  All images are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-Noncommercial-Share Alike 3.0 Unported License -John
