    Bristol's rednought Storm water drain is now largely redundant after the building of the Dreadnought storm water interceptor.. Now it only see's use during heavy rain and only takes its fill from the Malago stream and surrounding roads.
    The drain is tidal as it empties into the tidal flow of the river Avon.. The large silt deposits are carried in during the tidal phase and with little flow from the Malago the silt builds up in large banks either side.

    Plenty of life in the water, Tiny Elvers and adult Eels.. Sticklebacks and some kind of suckermouth catfish that I've not seen before? Next time I go I'm taking a net and bucket and will capture one to classify the species.

    Whilst trying to identify the Catfish I came across this interesting article..

    Yes mate it does. I'd say check your tide tables VERY carefully.
