Fish back in Bradford beck

electrofishingThe Environment Agency recently did an electrofishing survey on Bradford Beck – here are the (encouraging) results:

Bradford Beck at Cemetery Road = 51 Brown Trout and 50+ Bullheads

Bradford Beck near A657 Road Bridge (upstream of gauging station) = 15 Brown Trout, 8 Bullhead and 14 Stone Loach (plus there were three other Brown Trout seen but not caught)

Clayton Beck at Leaventhorpe Lane Stables = 16 Brown Trout and 44 Bullhead

It appears the beck has made a full recovery following the almost total wipe out below Bradford four or five years ago.

(PS The photo is NOT from Bradford Beck, it’s a generic electrofishing photo I had)
