Riverfly Monitoring project

One of our members, Andrew Griffiths, is setting up a Riverfly Monitoring project on the Rivers Goyt and Sett. Riverfly Monitoring samples the fly life at a selected site of the river on a monthly basis, and checks for any sudden changes that may indicate signs of pollution. Riverfly monitors are trained in Environment Agency standard techniques, and the results are fed into a national database. There is an article, [click here] that Andrew wrote for the current edition of Countryfile Magazine*, after attending a training day on the River Irwell. If you are interested in becoming a riverfly monitor, or just want to know more about how riverfly works, please email Andrew on:
