Message for Zebedee

Hi Zebedee. Pleased to report that today I stood and watched a shoal of Chub today in the Bevern Stream approx 30 metres upstream of where it passes under Novington Lane. In the last few weeks I have also seen the odd single fish lurking in some of the glides. Early morning I regularly see a Heron and sometimes a pair of Egrets.

What a disappointment. I read this as 'Massage for Zebedee'.

Super news Helen, I think the EA were on top of the sewerage leak pretty quickly. Lots of mullet feeding in the margins at low tide in the Ouse by the brewery last week.

Hi Helen,
Thats very encouraging. There are lots of minor tributaries entering the Bevern between the Plumpton College and Novington Lane so the best guess is that they have emerged from one of these as it would be a miracle if they'd survived had they been resident in the Bevern as the slurry pollution slug passed down the stream. And the fact they've not starved since then is a minor miracle too.

I frequently walk along the Bevern at Barcombe and I've not seen any fish life in the stream since the incident. Have seen the heron though, but along with the kingfishers he spends more time on our ponds nowadays.

Thanks for letting me know.

Helen and Zebedee, I wonder if you've heard about e-mail, a very good way of communicating with people. Or you could even try talking to one another.

Invading armies are famous for "interbreeding" as you so delicately put it. I'm sure there's plenty of Norman dna as well. Please... more
