Livingston children excited to take part in fish release
Date: 14 Mar 2018
Children at Bright Horizons Livingston Early Learning and Childcare nursery were recently involved in a fish release, in partnership with Forth Fisheries.
The children walked down to a nearby river where they then released Brown Trout into the water. They spoke about what they thought the fish would do once entering the river.
“Five weeks ago we were given some Brown Trout fish eggs to look after by Forth Fisheries,” said Nursery Manager Jackie Simpson. “All of our preschool children, staff and some parents walked down the burn with trout flags and sang some fishy songs to give our fish a fantastic send off. Amy from Forth Fisheries came along to help and also brought some bugs out from the river bed for us to see what our fish would be eating.”
