Bullhead (Cottus gobio) - River Trent Notts.

Bullhead (Cottus gobio) - River Trent Notts. by Lamia textor

Definitely not  a beetle but a cracking little beast a Bullhead, just shows how clean the River Trent has become these days. Forty years ago if you turned a stone over in the Trent you would only have found leeches and tubifex, a sure sign of pollution.  This one was found at Shelford by turning over some of the marginal stones.

No bullheads were harmed in the making of this Blog!
