There is much to see along the canal from scenery to wildlife.
The best view is from an outside deck, but it is worth keeping an eye out from the cabin even during less-pleasant weather.
In the spring, water birds nest and raise their young. At quiet times a flash of blue from a kingfisher might greet those keeping a sharp lookout. Timid moorhens rush for cover with their dangling feet almost touching the water.
There are lots of fish to see in places where the water is clear, which attracts both herons and anglers.
Depending on the season, there is an abundance of dragonflies and damselflies dancing across the water and buzzing the boat.
