Blue Winged Olive Nymph found in the River Irk!

We held a great riverbank restoration session on the River Irk today at Alkrington, planting Phragmites Reeds in the new wetland, and coppicing timber to infill eroded sections of riverbank. Our kick samplers found blue winged olives - the first one ever recorded on the Irk and irrefutable evidence that water quality in the River Irk is improving. Just downstream a young angler caught the trout of a lifetime..... a very enjoyable day.
