While there isn’t much activity on our rivers over winter, that doesn’t mean nothing is happening. Birds are being seen, traps are being made (heaps of them!

Don’t forget, please keep me updated with events for the calendar and articles, snippets of information, press releases, your latest journal publication/research etc for our news page, which is how this newsletter is generated. Meanwhile, stay warm.
