There was plenty of sign yesterday morning with fresh spraint on the wood/gravel steps by the weir and in the usual spot, on the concrete outflow by the bypass bridge. Also looking across the river at the weir there are quite a few Crayfish claws on the bank where it meets the wall of the weir on the downstream side, looks like a regular eating spot.
I continued upstream this morning and at Biddenham Loop CP I found suitable subjects and conditions to attempt a "black background" shot and it didn't turn out too bad, if I do say so myself:
