Ahhh, but do we really know the actual facts?
This is pre planned, extensive management of a riparian owners river bank, took days to do, not the odd hour here and there.
It has not been a spur of the moment operation.
Looks a bit like (on a far minor level) the flood prevention methods carried on on Tay, Dee, Nith, Annan, Tweed et al. Some of which, as you know, I have been involved in.
Lets see what comes out in the wash.
Sure, if its just some landowner making it easier for the cows to drink (extremely doubtful!) then prosecute, but there is a lot more to this one than meets the eye, or indeed the local naturalists viewpoints!
Still think you are wrong Bert.This is an important river,.and permissionn would never have been given for ad hock flood prevention especially at spawning time.I think you are just being ''Bert' 'Ie Beligerent.
