Yet another day that conformed to the current pattern – a wet morning followed by a dry and sunny afternoon.  So the river remains in good form with decent water.

Any member fishing up from Horton village may be surprised by a small flock of domestic geese that have taken up residence above Austin’s pool.  These belong to my neighbour, but clearly fancied a change of scene as a few days ago they all took off in unison did a double circuit of my house and headed down river.  Attempts to lure them back have so far proved less than successful.  The hope is that they will eventually get bored and head back.

The vixen that took the swans eggs earlier in the summer has now been removed (permanently) so the hope is that unless another moves in this autumn we may get some breeding waterfowl in the vicinity of the Tarn next year.
