The Salmon run ! really.
I have over the years been lucky enough to watch the annual Salmon migration at various locations around the UK, but this year was probably the best yet. The start of this amazing spectacle was held in check due to low water levels in the river, the salmon were backing up in the deeper reaches awaiting the rain for a couple of weeks.
At last rain started to fill the tributaries and feeder streams across the county heralding the movement many had been waiting for.
The Atlantic Salmon (salmo salar) running, is an excellent spectacal to be able to witness, people were cheering and clapping as each of the large fish made it up and over the weir typically British ! With the Salmon run and the Red deer rut coming to an end more or less, the next project has to be the Red squirrel.
So keep your eyes open
