BBC Winterwatch cameras delve beneath the surface of famous Highland river

Great to see the River Ness District Salmon Fishery Board playing a prominent part in BBC Winterwatch with more spectacular underwater footage of salmon.

Fishy goings-on along the River Ness will be a focus for the BBC’s Winterwatch team until the end of January.

The much-loved nature show has placed live cameras beneath the surface of what is one of the UK’s cleanest city waterways.

Assisted by Chris Conroy, river director and clerk of the Ness District Salmon Fishery Board, the show’s presenters are aiming to take a close look at Atlantic salmon that use the river to spawn.
