|At a precarious angle|
|Not a straight post to be seen.|
|Not having time to replace the post this was a 'make do and mend'|
|Job done. May not be pretty but at least it can now be locked.|
Yesterday I mentioned life had returned to the lower Erewash, where the pollution had started at Stanton, to here at Sandiacre lock. I showed fish fry swimming by our moorings and newts, frogs and tadpoles have all been seen today.
But what is also amongst the lily pads are larger fish. It appeared that some fish did survive the pollution but what is so very noticeable is what is growing on them. To me it looks like some sort of fungus and I have no doubt that these fish must be dying very slowly, one of which is now lying dead beside Mike's boat Destiny.
|Small roach. roughly 5" long. Signs of the fungus near the tail fin.|
|I believe this is a chub. The eye looks affected.|
|You can see the white cotton wool like substance covering it's body|
