It was wet but the hardy 6 walked it anyway, eager to discover interesting river bed features.
The rain did eventually easy up and finally stopped by the time we reached Ham House.

There were 4 large trees down right across the path.
Dave discovered eels under a rock then started finding more eels under just about every large rock.

I took these photos before dropping my camera in the river which did it no good at all.

Enjoyed this morning despite the heavy rain, good to see you Ed, Matthew Kevin and James and Will M.

Tide not as far down as would have hoped but it was chugging over the weir and the amount of rain we have had recently has pushed the level up.

Added a few of Eds pics direct on here.































And found plenty of these hiding amongst the rocks and mud..





Thou shall not pass....a huge old Oak tree down right across the tow path, one of many

I think it was a bit of fungus deemed responsible for the fallen tree John!

Did you spot the Zebra Mussel in Kev's shellfish picture?

The moped was too big for just Matthew & me to retrieve, added photo on fixmystreet: http://www.fixmystreet.com/report/401097

The bag of rice trick worked, my camera has indeed dried out and revived from the dead.
Unfortunately the river water was so full of silt that it is all through the lens and
CCD internally, the only pictures possble are varying shades of fuzzy specked brown Sad
I did rinse it a little under the tap at home first but perhaps a more thorough bathing and re-drying will clean it. I guess there's nothing to lose now.

I think so - wedged sideways between a stone & another mussel?

BTW are those other, greenish tinged moluscs Depressed River Musssels?

Yes Paul - at a certain stretch there were mounds of them washed up on the foreshore. Slightly further down at Ham car park you can find living specimens of zebra mussels and clams, but I haven't seen a living mussel yet - though I have found recently departed ones (i.e. with flesh still attached inside).

Whoa!  One month on, Matthew just removed my camera from the bag of rice, stuck some batteries in and it is working with a picture again!  Was sure it was all silted up inside before, but seems OK now   Very Happy
