English Mist

Hello to my friends in Japan who browsed CanalCam and said how it reminded them how beautiful England is with its mist.

I'm very pleased to encourage people's thoughts of England's beauty, but sadly CanalCam has become a bit damaged after pointing outdoors into the sunlight for a few years, and the mist is actually just the effect of a worn out camera!!!

OK, I'm opening up a challenge to everyone:

Send in a picture of yourself waving at CanalCam.

You'll have to figure out for yourselves exactly where CanalCam is. It's triggered by large amounts of movement such as boats or groups of people going past.

The CanalCam site holds the last 10 triggered pictures so you might have to rush home to get your picture sent - or alternatively phone a friend whilst you're in shot.

You'll need to take a screen print, or copy of the CanalCam image and email it to

Successful entries will be posted on the blog

Wait on, Winter's back!

Well, Spring may have sprung, but just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, the Snow Queen reminds us all that she's still got some fight in her yet.
Yes, hail and snow!

Spring has finally Sprung

I'm pleased to say that Mother Nature seems to have accepted that Spring has finally arrived in Saddleworth. All Along the canal saplings are beginning to sprout

Attack Goose

I thought I was going to get my elusive flying goose picture today, I guess these do count, but far more exciting was what this incoming goose did to a seemingly innocent bystanding goose
Innocent bystanding(attacked) goose seemed very forgiving and happily flew off with his would be assailant and another innocent bystander.
