This a quick podcast I made down by my local River Goyt, just on the Derbyshire side of the Derbyshire - Cheshire border. It is about a heron hunting where I am pretty sure trout are spawning, but because the water is coloured and the angle is such it is difficult to see what is going on in this river sometimes - it is a mix of detective work and guess work. But I suspect the heron knows. Really it is just me talking to myself for eight minutes from the middle of a tree. I made this for people who are interested in the wildlife they see on and around a river, but may be not so sure about what is going on beneath the surface.

And if you are inspired to find out more about trout then there is more information than you can shake a stick at on the excellent Wild Trout Trust site, and if you fancy a bash at kick sampling and becoming a part of the Riverfly Partnership citizen science network I mention in the podcast, then you can find out how to do that by clicking here.
