I’m not sure why I didn’t post any of these photos back in June. I guess they are nothing special – the Damselfly and Dragonfly shots are blurry. 🙁 But the bridge is interesting.
The photos were taken on another local Ingress outing where I was looking for Uniques but because I had my camera with me I took a few detours. The photos are all taken from either the tow path of the Leeds Liverpool Canal or the banks of the River Aire.
The header image is of Kirkstall Abbey taken from near Kirkstall Lock on the Canal.
Quite close to the Kirkstall Lock on the Leeds Liverpool Canal I spotted a Dragonfly zipping up and down. I know it is a bit blurry but I think it is a Southern Hawker.
I have been along to this bridge over the River Aire a few times. It is a bit of a squeeze to get past the posts. It is a suspension bridge that now doesn’t really lead anywhere but is very ornate. On the other side of the bridge is a fence into Esholt Sewerage Treatment. On the other side of a fence, hidden by the hedge and trees, I could just see the top of a conveyor belt. The wind was blowing a brown dust from the top of it. A sewerage works! I wonder what the brown dust could have been? It covered a large area along the river bank.
Back on the other side of the river, just down from the bridge, were these holes in the river bank. I assume they are holes made by Sand Martins. I would have spent more time watching them but the nettles were taller than me and I was slowly getting covered in brown “dust”.
