    Military divers are there regularly, either diving or doing work for the site.

    Define "a long time", we found a block of C4 quite near some very interesting pieces of twisted metal a few years ago. Admittedly, it wasn't Army divers that time...

    You think people dive a muddy puddle to look at the fish?

    Well actually yes and while a few years back some one was blowing up things and killing fish I have seen no recent evidence, but things take a while for a decent ecosystem to form. This year NDAC

    A long term contract with the MOD is most definitely worth more than a load of one off rec divers. I doubt they give a fig about the fish life.

    I'm guessing it was the winter of '17, there were lots of perch on my first trip there in September '17 and when I went back in February '18 all we saw was a couple of dead ones.

    Hi Tim,

    I was at the NDAC the other week with my camera and my pic was not as nice or as clear as this. I use the Olympus gt-5, without a light or strobe. To get the quality of pic you have do you use a strobe? Also, what settings do you have you cam on please? Many thanks
