Nice those red eared turtles shame so many end up in canals although it can only be better than in a tank that's way too small.

The Cut is not the place to bin
Your now unwanted Terrapin.
Get them together in a group
And turn them into a plate of soup.

great photo Mick, the canal seems to be full of them!

How things have changed along the canal;
Now there's evergreen shrubs and roses wild
Once it was murky,grey and banal,
Nature's wildlife now find it sublime -
It suits them well this climate mild!
