~Fishery scientists about to tackle a mountain stream~

The Hills are alive:

When you've negotiated a remote dirt track for a good few miles the last thing you expect is a group of fishery scientist carrying out survey work. In honesty, it's pleasing to see them monitoring both trout and insect populations. Better still they allowed us to wander upstream first, as who could possibly compete with electro fishing methods.....? Aside from this human presence they are wild boar roaming them there hills. Now wild boar have a fearsome reputation, but that's only if you corner them and the odds of that in wide open spaces are about zero. However grassy banks turfed up were clear evidence of their night time foraging actives.
