It’s been a difficult year financially or the Trust with funding extremely difficult to secure in the current financial climate. This morning we received a call from Scottish Power informing us that they are going to support our Loch Doon Project that is designed to research and then help solve some of the problems associated with the very poor salmon numbers reaching the loch. Currently less than 10 salmon per season make it into the loch to spawn.
Much more information will be released in the new Year on what this project is about but for the meantime, it was a very welcome Christmas present for the staff!
Further good news from the Doon is that 3 fencing project have now been completed. We will be planting a few trees in these areas over winter and continue with more fencing in the new Year.
Finally, but not necessarily the last post for the year, the staff at the Trust wish all our supporters and regular readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! The office is now closed and will remain so until the 5th January 2015. Anyone needing to contact the Trust urgently may leave a message on this blog or on our Facebook page where they will be picked up quickly. Alternatively, if you have my mobile number, just call.
