In the two tanks on the back of his 4x4 pick-up were 250 trout. Paul was soon netting them into the lake and within a short time the trout were swimming about in the bay.
While we were there a scientist from the Environment Agency arrived to take samples from the reservoir. Later she told me that she had netted a good amount of insect life including caddis & mayfly larvae. She said she didn't net any signal crayfish in the samples but I have no doubt that they are present in Burrator and probably in some numbers.
