Thanks Tengisgol, I will take a look.

Sounds like some great work being done on the Avon.

Yes! If you follow the link to the Facebook page or search Avon Roach Project on the Internet you will see some phenomenal photos of three pound Avon roaching spawning on the projects boards. They are staggered at the increase in roach spawning numbers compared to previous years, suggesting that the roach are now on their way to creating a foothold again as a direct result of their great work.
Fantastic! made my day to read this.

roach have just started spawning on the lower itchen, but only small fish and in small numbers, i put it down to lack of weed growth,but with warmer weather more weed growth could change it for the better.
