The next phase

September 25, 2017

I went to the river at Mickley Square on 19th November 2016. It was a lovely day, very cold.

On the pebble beach I noticed some crows by the waters edge, but they didn't seem to be eating anything. I wandered up the beach to the top, paused, looked down and there was a fish! My heart was racing and I watched the fish who only had the energy to breathe.

I stayed for awhile, as if to keep vigil.  The river rocking the body of the fish as it lay still. Then a couple of times it moved. The majority of the Salmon and many of the Sea Trout die naturally after spawning. Its the natural part of their journey.
