This is no surprise owing to the very dry weather. Let us pray for rain.

It is just the weather as Vaughan says for Blue Green Algae. Remember it is highly toxic to dogs. It goes without saying humans stay out and was hands after lifting mud weights. For anyone who is new it looks like this colour on top of the water and can be streaked as though it was oil.satellite-image-algal-bloom.jpg.38ef3623979ac0a73e00e9d7a067a87f.jpg

A good downpour of cold rain is what is needed but non on the horizon yet. Some years back we crossed Barton early morning and it was like going through thick pea soup, it stiffled our bow wave and wash. The Met keep putting up showers but they don't materialise. A real thunderstorm with hail is what the rivers need.

Couldn’t resist. I’m fishing and catching. Will just have to be careful and wash my hands


I bet the crew have some Marigolds somewhere, borrow them.
