Fishing on Wilden Marsh

There are plenty of fish swimming around in various Wilden Marsh ponds and pools, and North Pond is a particular favourite with pike, trout and eels.

I found this dead pike in North Pond this morning with two puncture marks close to its head, either a result of a heron stabbing or, more likely I think, otter teeth. Otters will be dining on toads in North Pond at the moment, and probably pike too.
