Waterworks Part 1

We have decided that we need to keep an eye on the waterway under the path. This area flooded badly in the winter so we just need to see what is going on.

After checking to make sure there were no nesting birds, we eased a path to allow us to see what is going in, and what is coming out. If it is simply too much volume of water we cannot do much about it. What we can do though, is keep the brook clear of branches and other blockages.

Part 2 of this will be at the other end just before Potford Dam. Here the brook runs parallel with the path, so hopefully we can incorporate it into our habitat management. There used to be a reedbed so looking forward to encouraging that to flourish.

The usual look up and down shows a nice dry path.

hard to imagine that this was waterlogged a couple of months ago.

Next week we are starting a bench maintenance program at the Cawston Bridleway cutting and heading south.
