Bombing through


      The River Delph at Welney looking very full and positively bombing through the Bridge Pool. The river must be at least four feet above normal level and it looks like filthy washing-up water.
      There are big pike, zander, carp, tench, bream, eels, roach, rudd  and even sea trout in this river but I think they will have taken shelter from this torrent, probably at the edge of a field in the washes.
      In the rather blurred photograph below you can see the river pushing through the other side of the trees on the bank and the heron looking for a sheltered swim to find his lunch. Up in the dead tree are the inevitable cormorants 'resting and digesting' before their next dive into the murky waters.
      Go back to the sea we say.
