Canal trip ispotting


My OU natural sciences studies finish in October and to celebrate I'm planning a canal trip along the Military canal from Rye to Folkstone. I'm going to photo as much wildlife on route as I can and upload here. Has anyone ever been on the military canal? and could possibly give me some tips. I've invested in an inflatable kayak making it easy to traverse locks, plus I have a tent and a few other bits. If all goes well I think I will try a more long distance canal trip next summer, the military canal should be about 50-60 miles, should hopefully make it back.

Autumn canal trip

Sounds an exciting trip. There will be loads of waders and waterfowl around, a bit too late for bats unfortunately. Any chance of otters or water voles?
