What was hidden behind yesterday's gull? The Salmon Leap at the Cutts on the river Bann. This rocky outcrop forms a natural weir across the river. Salmon must negotiate this hurdle when they are returning from the ocean, to spawn in the rivers of their birth.
The weir is about a mile upstream from Coleraine. The river is tidal from the Atlantic Ocean up to this point - a distance of just over 5 miles, or around 9 kilometres.
