Further update relating to diseased salmon
Catchment Based Approach (CABA) and current Consultations
Please have a look at 'The Catchment Based Approach' tab above to get the update on this and on some current consultations.
We have moved! We now share offices with the National Trust at Scots Gap.
Otter holt available for immediate possession
This is a rare opportunity to own a newly built maisonette overlooking an extensive wetland feature at Corridge on the Wansbeck.
Master bedroom, reception area, side entrance, CCTV. Excellent trout and crayfish fishing. Quiet location would suit a young family or retired fishermen looking for a country retreat.
Corridge Bird Hide Topping Out
Many thanks to Dick and Linda for their hospitality at the 'topping out' event for the bird hide and wetlands on 3rd May.
Henzell Enterprises have done an excellent job with the hide and the 3 Hectares of wetlands that were funded by the Catchment Restoration Fund, the Environment Agency and the landowner.
33 species of bird have already been spotted, and hopefully there will be many more once this site becomes established!
Coastal Streams Project
We are about to start an exciting new project to improve the Chevington Burn and Hauxley Burn with the Environment Agency and the Northumberland Wildlife Trust. More details to follow.
Urban Streams Project
At the recent Northumberland Rivers Catchment Partnership we agreed that this project is best delivered by the Northumberland Wildlife Trust. The work will focus on the Seaton Burn, Horton Burn and Briardene Burn, and is funded by the Environment Agency CPAF fund. We will be working closely with NWT on new channel designs and improvements.
Fish Counter Data for the River Coquet and Salmon Numbers in general
As we reported recently, we are delighted to now be able to share fish counter data for the Coquet. The equipment that is on loan from the Environment Agency records salmon and sea trout (although it is currently not possible to differentiate between the two). Big thanks to Mick Donkin for his help with this. December, January and February figues are now shown below.
Unfortunately we are only able to include details up to 20th April 2015 for now.
