Spring growth in the sunshine along the Glen

There is a lot of activity now along Glen Goyle.

Phil Lee reports on the birds: Half way up the goyle and leaning over the stream, is a sawn off tree trunk, about five metres high. A Great Tit is nesting in a hole about half way up. We watched it fly in and out three times, removing bright orange fecal sacs, so there is a brood in there. 

And on the visitors: We meet a chap who is volunteering for Westcountry Rivers Trust, and is about to start testing the water on a regular basis. We said that we would be interested in his results.

Katie Frost has taken a few stunning photos:
