There’s a confidence within the river of its structure; it rarely changes. There are always pools in the same areas, always riffles in the same areas. What changes is what lies on them or hangs over them. Usually leaves in Autumn but now in Spring all the beech bud fragments dot the area giving it almost an autumnal feel! After a big flood there’s lots of plastic. There was otter spraint on various prominent rocks too. Maybe on my next foray I can photograph an otter! I saw a dipper, yellow and pied wagtails, plus a heron on this visit. It’s amazing what you can find in a short stretch of river. I look forward to more explorations down here.
Yes, indeed, why am I not down here everyday? It’s an absolute gem!
