Dear Volunteers,

I hope you all had a lovely long weekend!

We had a very busy week last week including a task day on the Ouseburn as part of the Ouseburn River Restoration with Groundwork, a visit to Kielder hatchery and a school visit for our Salmon in the classroom project! Thank you to everyone involved!

I think its safe to say everyone enjoyed the visit to the hatchery and Richard is very happy for us to go again when they are stripping the fish and also for the collection of the Broodstock fish. I will let you know dates!

A few dates for your diary….
Friday 5th May- Friars Goose, Gateshead- Litter pick- 10.30am,
Wednesday 10th May, 10.30am- Ovingham Reading Rooms Talk by Jack Bloomer on ‘The effect and sources of low oxygen levels on Atlantic salmon eggs’
Tuesday 16th May- 10.30am- Vol task day- locationTBC
Thursday 25th May- 10.30am- Vol task day-location TBC

Some more good news is that Helen Macdonald, Head ranger at Gibside has very kindly offered to do a bat walk for us at Gibside in August. We have pencilled this in for…
Tuesday 8th August- 8pm- 10/10.30pm – Gibside- Bat walk
Anybody else who would like to be pesticide trained or trained to be a Riverfly monitor I still have spaces left for this and I will let you know dates as soon as possible but I anticipate both to be in June/ July.

I will also let you know the date of the Geomorphology course with Professor Malcolm Newson soon.

One final request, can those of you who usually tackle Himalayan balsam in your areas each year let me know and we can put some dates in the dairy to help during June/ July.

Thanks everyone, hope to see you all soon! I will be out and about in schools for our Mayfly in the Classroom project for the next few weeks! Next year I would like to get volunteers involved with this and Salmon in the classroom, let me know if you fancy it!

Best Wishes,
