The fish are swimming too!

We're just received this video from the underwater cameras at Philiphaugh Salmon Viewing Centre in the Scottish Borders. It shows the huge number of fish trying to get up the river.

The Fish are Jumping!

Autumn brings some great wildlife spectacles, and one of the most impressive is the migration of salmon up our great rivers so that they can spawn.

This event is at its peak at the moment and one of the best places to watch it is at the Salmon Viewing Centre on Philiphaugh Estate near Selkirk in the Scottish Borders. The visitor centre with its underwater cameras and fish counter sits by the River Ettrick and over 600 fish were counted going up the river in one day!
