The River Foss Society has always kept busy with a packed calendar of walks, visits, litter picks and canal boat trips, and you can see more about these in our newsletter.
During lockdown, we’ve continued to measure the water quality at several different points along the river, as well as keeping breast of events in general. Never have the paths along the river been so busy, there are even “dual carriageway” in places to allow people to pass each other safely! We’ve had a plethora of reports of various sightings along the river, sadly none of water voles and only a few of otters – mink on the other hand seem to be increasing in number.
Kingfishers continue to delight us all, and have been seen from Yearsley baths upstream.
