Just brilliant and I don’t know why but I’m always amazed how fast nature settles in after given the right habitat?
Ribble Trust has done something similar and perhaps surprisingly it was Grayling that first made use of the fish passes and many miles of new river. I’m now catching bright silver smolts in April/May. Given he fact that a group of males will fight over a female I can’t believe that just one pair are getting up?
It’s criminal how many miles of spawning streams/rivers have been straightened and ruined as the lifeblood of the system.

This is exactly the sort of collaborative project we need. Forming conservation alliances with mainstream conservation organisations will achieve a great deal more than demanding culls of predators and CR.

Yep I’ve been an RSPB member forever but they don’t seem to bothered. Someone told me on holiday there was an alternative bird club that is more science based?

Been great following this project. Loved the fact that a seatrout entered the new "system" almost immediately after the inlet and outlet channels were opened up. Flippin' marvelous stuff.
