Hopefully there are no sheeps grazing the vintage airfields - or fishes in the local streams.

"Fishes" can be a legitimate plural, even outside US English.

I was probably being nostalgic about my youth - before the language was dumbed down as much. In reality, I gave up my "fishes" crusade last century  :'( :'(- though it still causes me pain to hear it and I refuse to utter the abomination myself. >:( >:(

Online OED: "The normal plural of fish is fish (a shoal of fish; he caught two huge fish). The older form fishes is still used, when referring to different kinds of fish (freshwater fishes of the British Isles)."

The US (and possibly Canadian) usage is different and I agree that it grates.
