Derbyshire Wildlife Trust Film: River Derwent

I'm currently doing a commission for the Derbyshire Wildlife Trust on a short film profiling the River Derwent and Its wildlife as well as showing problems and successes on the river.

Cattle eroding the riverbanks 

I've got the next few months to try and capture as much as possible before editing it into a short film that will then be released for everyone to see. I'm trying to build up a data base of locations to film various wildlife along the Derwent, Rivers that enter the Derwent such as the Wye or Lathkill and work out how best to film which is where you may be able to help! below is a list of priority species. if you know of a likely sight to see these please get in touch. If you have any suggestions or other species that use/inhabit the river I'm keen to cover a range of species, issues and triumphs. 

Mammals
Otter
Water Vole
Mink

Birds
Dipper
Kingfisher
Goosander

Inverts
White Clawed Crayfish
Signal Crayfish
Mayfly Larvae
Stonefly Larvae 

Fish

Problems and Successes
