Sorry - I meant Kelts of this winter's spawning run salmon heading back to sea. 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.

Here is a telephoto shot of coloured fungal salmon seen wallowing in shallows on main Tyne yesterday.

The next decent flush of water will clear these out back to the sea I suspect.

Given it's some significant while since their nuptials, I wonder what causes some to hang around like this - if I was a salmonid I'd offbugger back to sea soonest.
