Trout Escape!

Photographer captures trout's great escape

The owners of a trout farm were left baffled when fish were going missing. But then a wildlife photographer caught their extraordinary escape route on camera.
He pictured the trout making giant leaps out of their pond straight into the metal feed pipe three feet above the water level.
They then fought against the current for 30 feet until they reached the end of the eight inch wide pipe, which emerges underwater in a tributary of the River Itchen near Alresford, Hants.
