I was invited by email (totally out of the blue - I think someone must have read my blog!) to attend an event nearby highlighting plans that Yorkshire Water and The Environment Agency have the the River Don. My email said "to someone who has an interest in the local area" and I do love a walk along the Don. I missed a lot of the talk that they were doing, and I couldn't stay for the later one, but I gathered from the latter end of the talk that Salmon are now returning up the Don from the North Sea and trying to spawn, but the chemical composition of the river water (because of what is currently poured into it still) is not conducive for spawning. They are aiming to remedy this. I think that this is very exciting!
