We have sheep grazing our paddock which is bounded by the River Lodon – a small brook really. Whilst walking round the sheep we noticed a group of people from the Enviroment Agency who were caring out electronic fishing to establish what was in the river. From a short stretch they netted about 30 small trout, an eel and a lamprey. I was amazed at so much water life in a small brook. They were all returned safely after monitoring. The eel and the lamprey will find their way to the sea to complete their life-cycle.
