The picture shows beat 7 looking upstream through the bridge past the hut. The Beat was carrying more water than I have previously experienced and some of the normally still canal water was moving gently. The windfarm is now a distant apparition upstream. I fished for half a day ,mainly on the bottom pool without result. Main wildlife sight was a good view of a male Hen Harrier that passed directly over me. It was very like a seagull.
It rained very heavily overnight so the river may be up for my final day on Beat 5
