What we’ve been up to: New Advisory Visit reports on the website

We’ve just uploaded a new batch of recent Advisory Visit reports in the Advice & Help section of our website, showing where some of our Conservation Officers have been out and about in the last few months.

Rob Mungovan has visited the River Cam at Newport, the Otter at Honiton, and the Welland at Ketton and Uffington.

Jonny Grey has walked long stretches of the River Swale in Swaledale, as well as the Aire at Hanlith, while Andy Thomas has looked at the Ock near Godalming, and Tim Jacklin has been assessing the Churnet at Alton.

Tim, Jonny and our Trout in the Town manager Paul Gaskell have been out on some urban rivers too: the Worth in Keighley, the Guphill Brook in Coventry, the Don at Tin Mill and the Sheaf in Sheffield.

As usual, we’ll be very interested to see where these Advisory Visit reports might lead in the future: at the last count, around 80% of our reports turned into practical action of some kind, usually in partnership with many other organisations.

You can also find our whole library of reports via the searchable map HERE.

Our Advisory Visit programme is funded by the Environment Agency in England with funds from angling rod licence sales, with recipients contributing only our Conservation Officer’s travel costs.

If you’d like to request a visit and report for a river where you have an interest, please contact our office, and we’ll put you in touch with the most appropriate Conservation Officer.
