I was thinking that when I have learnt to shoot for my trip, I might try and reduce our large population of grey squirrels. [ joking ]
I was in the stream earlier, cleaning out debris, and I saw a Crayfish, which is definitely a first for me.
The stream runs off the moor and there was a lot of lead mining up until late Victorian times; so I guess the stream was pretty dead. Now though we have brook trout and then this today. We also had Water Voles for a while, but they were predated by a cat, that I used to find regularly staring intently into the water.
