The trout are thriving....

So far, so good! The fry seem to be enjoying their new home and the eggs are due to hatch any day. Recently, my colleague, Jo Morris, had an exciting 
parcel arrive in the post..... an underwater camera that she was planning to trial for her new Wild Schools filming project. Of course this was a prime opportunity to see what life was like as a trout living at the AWT headquarters. So we tentatively tested it, plunging it into the cool waters of the tank. To our surprise, there was a smooth transition as the camera filmed both inside and outside of the tank, and the fish seemed quite happy too.

Jo made a fantastic short movie that sums up the project so far, so take a look for a close up of our trout and their lovely abode.
