Dear Volunteers,

How was your weekend!?

Just a quick catch up……

I have a few spaces left if anybody would like to go on a one day Riverfly monitoring course? This is likely to be in June, no definite date yet but I will let you know asap. This is a one day course but in the long term we would love you to monitor a suitable burn once a month (usually takes just a couple of hours or so) and we will provide the kit, you can do this task in pairs.

Also a reminder of our talk this week…
Wednesday 10th May, 10.30am, The Reading Rooms, Ovingham- TRT Project Manager Jack Bloomer will be telling us all about the subject of his recent PhD, ‘The effects and causes of low oxygen levels on Atlantic Salmon’. This is a nice follow on from our recent visit to Kielder hatchery but also a good opportunity to meet Jack and just for a cup of tea/ coffee and cake¬†with the other volunteers. Jack is looking forward to meeting you all!! Please let me know if you can make it!
And our task next week…
Tuesday 16th May, 10.30am, Blaydon Burn, Litter pick (please meet there at 10.30am or at the TRT office at 10am)
Let me know if you can make it along! Will be great to see you!

Please note I will be away 11th and 12th of May and again on 18th- 23rd May.
