The highly successful Severn & Avon River Fly Life conference was held in January and funded by the Big Lottery Fund. The Cain Valley River Group will be joining the Severn Rivers Trust AMI later this year, and a number of schools invertebrate days are planned following successes of previous years. We have had no breaches in trigger levels to date but have discovered a rarity on the River Teme, the Yellow Mayfly (Potamanthus luteus).
