Purple Mountain Flower

12th March 2017
              We've just arrived home from our yearly visit to pen-y-ghent to find the Purple Mountain Saxifrage. Some clumps were opening but the full show will probably be around 10 days time. The weather was blustery with low cloud but not cold 8c. The saxifrage grows down to sea level in Northern Greenland and up to 10,000ft in the Alps and Rockies, it really is a true arctic alpine flower.

SUCH A SUCCESS STORY

30th January 2017
                         The RIBBLE RIVERS TRUST spring conference was held on the 26th & 27th of March 2015 but it's taken me so long to complete the film because I couldn't film any salmon spawning until this Nov 2017.
      This is a short film showing just some of the many events that I've recorded over the last 5 years making the URBAN RIVERS ENHANCEMENT SCHEME in our local rivers such a success story.
