I was out walking on the main Tyne yesterday and kelts were seen in the shallows with backs out of water and ragged fins. So, some kelts are clearly in the rivers still.

    Ure salmon

    These will be late running kelts (to clarify= Kelts of late spawning salmon - heading back to the sea). The fungus is not unusual at all.

    Major forum upgrade on it's way!

It's a painful business so the forum will be out of action for at least 24 hours and then be "work in progress" for a day or so after that but usable. The good news is that uploading images is much much easier...
