Walking alongside the canal, and only one thing spoils it the amount of litter left by inconsiderate individuals. Rubbish can also be seen floating on top of the water, not only is this dangerous for any wildlife in the area (particulary in the water) but it’s unsightly.
Why don’t people but rubbish in the bin or in their pocket or bag before they get home? I know there are already fines in place for people who are caught throwing litter I just wish more could be done to stop them. The picture here is from a small patch by my local canal.
