Done mee rounds this morning, some points, a swan is nesting in the small cut out bit on the left hand side of main island, further down, around 3/4 of the way down on the left hand side of the main island is a small dead dog,

on the out let of the breeding canal, someone has built a dam, this is man made and not done by a beaver, unless they have some hammers and nails, sticks have been pushed into the ground and branches have been place in-per-tween them, thats it Crazy crab signing off pirat AAAAaaaaaRRRRrrrrrrr woff wofff


ps

cheers Dave, I remember it doing it last year, but it seams a lot thicker this year, plus any think on who build the dam, or should we take it down, the lockpeepers do not know who done it,

The posting/editing screen has clearly changed, nothing we've done so I presume there must have been an upgrade by forumotion.com who provide it.  Have a look here: http://help.forumotion.com/t124616-new-editor-for-forumotion-forums

Yes the screen has changed but still the same functions, not bad for free.

Re posting the lovely sign at Penton Hook, taken ages to get this so well done to Stuart Keable of the EA. Smile

Also hearing signs are now up at Sunbury about Lock and Weir fishing, all with a little bit of engagement from us. Cool

Agreed John, is definitely a coup for the club.  And as said by Dave, nice one to Stu Keable the EA's Thames officer for working so closely with us.

Ironic, ordinarily we curse "no fishing" signs, but the first one that goes up with our name on it says "no fishing"...Razz

Myself and Keith went done to PH last week following a chat with the EA about one of the swims.

Stu K (of the EA) had been asked (by a permit holder) if one of the swims could be sorted out as overgrown and difficult to access. I said we were happy to get involved and we did, pic as below. We cleared the thorny stuff along the bank and I got in with the chesties and removed some of the reeds

In addition we cut back some of the brambles around the platforms and gave it a bit of a tidy up. Thanks Keith, top work mate, good to get wet and dirty Smile 

The swim by the overspill weir (Note that someone jumped in there almost straight away, is a cracking spot now Wink ).

Good work KC. Was in contact with EA fisheries earlier this week and they went down to take a look. Ops have been informed and it should be removed soon (if not already)

Keep it up mate, the guardian of the Island pirat
