Crayfish arrive

A long time since the last entry! A guided walk down the Brook Wood trail and valley on Sunday had a wet end, but to our surprise turned up a new species. It was not a particularly desirable one; but an American signal crayfish (that's the invasive species) in the brook above Dancing Bridge was at least a proof (along with a shoal of young Rudd swiming above it) that the brook is in good health. George.
