A low clear river and frost

Contributed by John Garner (10.04.2003)

As of today 10.4.03 the river is very low and clear. We've had several nights of hard, hard frosts since the weekend which combined with the river level will make for very difficult fishing conditions. There are fish about, albeit in tight pockets, notebly downstream of Warcop, Musgrave and Blandswath bridges. On the nature front add a peacock butterfly to Brian's list [Warcop 29.3.03] and a sand martin high over Musgrave [29.3.03]
