Wels Catfish at the Surface

Nik, the owner at Holly Pools, has managed to catch some of the lakes residents on camera feeding in the margins…

I have heard the opinion stated from non-cat lovers that Wells cats “Just sit on the deepest bit of bottom all day, then surface at night and eat your 20lb carp”.  Certainly there is less known about Silure behaviour (as the French call them) than carp, but I have been learning a lot by the simple expedient of standing and watching them for minutes on end. In the day time. Near the surface. Competing with the carp for particles and generally being catfish.

In this short clip you can see they are far from shy and nocturnal!
