Today is world rivers day, so I thought to celebrate I would right a quick post showing some of Britain’s river wildlife.

In fact in England there are no no rivers of the highest quality. To find truly clean water a trip to Scotland is required, where you can find species like the Orange striped stonefly, which is endemic to Britain.
