The Cauld And Salmon Viewing Centre

July has been wet and river levels are still high. All four cameras are working again. One has been placed in the river downstream of the turbines and fish have been seen as they migrate to the fish pass. Visit the Salmon Viewing Centre to see the live action.

 

Work on the Selkirk Flood Prevention Scheme is going well and the new flood bank is almost complete. A footpath will be made along the top of the bank and landscaping will be carried out to replace the trees, which were felled.
