Monday 9th – Friday 13th November 2015:
Monday – on leave. Tuesday – in the office mainly finishing off the report on the lamprey of the Till, James is on traps duty this week. Wednesday – with Nick around the upper catchment to show a new Foundation Trustee some of the places we do work or have an interest in:- the Tweedsmuir & Peebles trout traps; the new fish pass in to St. Mary’s Loch and the new fish pass at the Murray Cauld on the Ettrick. Thursday – back in the office, almost finished the lamprey report. Friday – weekly staff meeting and lots of little bits of admin. Putting together a page on the website for people to report in sightings of interest to us – lamprey spawning, fallen trees blocking burns etc. James got some good underwater video of salmon spawning today, including a little precocious Parr sneaking in from the big male’s blind side.
