A SAFE HAVEN FOR NATIVE CRAYFISH

15th November 2022

We’ve spent the summer working with a group of volunteers to monitor the locations and population of native white clawed crayfish in the River Rede, as part of our Native North Tyne project, funded by the National Lottery Heritage Fund. Our Native North Tyne project celebrates what’s interesting and unique about the River North Tyne […]

TACKLING METALS POLLUTION

Our work to reduce pollution from metal mines will be spurred on by our new Tyne Mining Legacy Project Manager, Martin Colling. He will be working on projects to stop a tonne of Lead, Zinc & Cadmium entering the river each year. Martin is an experienced hydrologist who will be focusing on the North Pennines where the primary objective […]

THE LEGACY OF WORKING WITH FARMERS

We’re celebrating the legacy of our farming funds which are drawing to a close, but which we hope will stand Tyne catchment farmers in good stead to manage land in a more environmentally friendly way. The three farming funds covering the Ouseburn, South Tyne and the Don to Derwent, worked with more than 120 farmers […]

VOLUNTEERS CREATE HABITAT AND HELP TO SLOW THE FLOW

3rd November 2022

From creating leaky dams to willow spiling and scrapes, our volunteers have had a busy autumn. Near Greenhead, they worked incredibly hard to hand dig over 60m² of shallow ponds known as scrapes and create 5 leaky dams. These ponds and leaky dams will help to slow the flow of water during heavy rain and […]

FISHING REPORT: 20 OCTOBER 2022

20th October 2022

The planned essential work to the Riding Mill fish counter was cancelled due to high river levels. It is unlikely the work will take place before 2023 as winter river levels are generally to high for such works to be completed. The counter at Riding Mill had recorded around 1,000  upstream counts for the month […]

After a day spent volunteering on the River South Tyne near Haltwhistle, Adrian White from Jesmond returned to the area for a walk and spotted his chance to capture […]

FISHING REPORT: 5 OCTOBER 2022

6th October 2022

The wet weather has created high river levels which when falling, encouraged migratory fish to run. Following the rise on the 29th September, the falling water on the 30th produced a count of 784 in one day. The counter at Riding Mill recorded 3361 upstream counts for the month, bringing the total for the year […]

RESTORING HABITAT ABOVE THE TYNE TUNNELS

27th September 2022

We’re working with tt2, the operators of the Tyne Tunnels, to transform a woodland above the river crossing – creating an accessible, sustainable community asset that will be enjoyed for generations. The habitat-restoration project will restore approx. 4.5 ha.  of forest that sits directly above the Northbound tunnel, in Wallsend, North Tyneside. Once complete, the […]
