Sorry, been a bit tied up.

I might not be around much this weekend, next weekend would suit me better (and looks like the same for Keith & Jack).

Out this morning with Colin, Keith and Jack.

Managed to sample Chertsey and Silversands, will post the results up later.

I headed down to Hampton Court after but was not great due to the high turbid water. Didn't go to Kingston as the deepest spot we sample and not worth the risk.

Will try again next weekend.

Seems a long time since we were talking about the drought.

Well done chaps.

Taking ownership of your river is brilliant, if you can find another spot as well even better, there may even be a CSO that's worth keeping an eye on.

I will keep a record along with the Thames sites Smile

cheers
