Perry Hay Brook - Water Project

Grid Ref SO 6209 1187

 

We were deep in the forest in the rain! We were clearing a glade as this is a noted area for Adders so we took down small trees and piled them up to provide shelter for the Adders as well as creating a sunny area for them to bask.

 

This is Perry Hay Brook lying below our glade. The brook has a lot of leafy dams in it now and the effect of these dams can be seen to have created small ponds and slow down the flooding.

Our ranger provided us with a little fire plus doughnuts!
