The winning Thames

I have in my hand the envelope with the name of the winner of the International Theiss River Prize 2010 and without further ado, ladies and gentlemen I will open it [scuffling sound]

And the winner is (drum roll please) ......


Yup, old Father Thames is alive and flourishing with "125 species of fish swim beneath its surface while more than 400 species of invertebrates live in the mud, water and river banks" according to the Telegraph here. And of course lots and lots of birds, including the one above that had just popped up after hunting for a spot of lunch.

Hurray! Another bit of good news (along with the rescue of those miners in Chile).
