Finbar has found several of these brightly coloured critters since the (too brief) storm on Friday. I was thrilled because crayfish are en endangered species in most of Europe because of competition from imported Louisiana crayfish. Identifying the introduced species is easy. The giveaway is their colour—bright red.
Crayfish in the ditch
I thought you were a happy find
turns out you are an intruder
an introduced invader
with a price on your head.
