Moorhen with beer can
Is this Moorhen old enough to be drinking beer?
Lovely shot, Carling gives me a headache.
Moorhen Colin ? Are you sure it's not a Scarling. Good pic, well spotted.
Canals have always been dumping places, shame really. but they are much cleaner than ever before.
(Did you order a carling darling)
Mucky Wigan, the canal bank is full of litter from the top lock
New Springs right through to Martland Mill
I was talking to the man who lives in the canal side house in Ince, and I was telling him that a lot of the litter is down to the local fishermen who walk away from where they have been sat fishing ,leaving behind the empty cans.
But he blamed it on the Ince school kids who walk along the canal bank on the way home from school
After martland mill its litter free, in places like Crooke, Gathurst, Appley Bridge and Parbold
And surprisingly its usually clean around the flashes, Platt Bridge and Bamfurlong.
Beercan, isn't that on the menu in the west indies with eggs for breakfast.!
Mick you are a strange man, do only fishermen leave litter, not walkers, boaters, kids, or anyone else who happens to pass along the banks, please put your brain in gear before coming out with dribble
It is a shame that our wildlife has to put up with human litter.
I like it. Have you got the shot with the reflection of the moorhen?
That would be good with the carling cans removed.
Mick, I haven't made the comment at 09:23. Someone can't face-up by using their own name.
who said that beer can was dropped in wigan leeds to Liverpool is 127miles long
A typing error in my last comment,there is just 1 can.
Aubrey, I would say that the removing of one can from this photo will automatically remove the other.
When I was a boy, we used to call these birds Woggies - though I've no idea why.
