Rain

Friday, August 28th 2020

A great deal of rain has fallen over the last few days and the quiet streams and becks on the reserve are now in spate.  The volunteers carried out a great deal of work on the cascading ponds to ensure that the fast flowing water did not undermine the dams.  They have been successful.

The lake looked rather forbidding in the overrcast conditions.

Risedale Beck was also fast flowing and could be heard as you approached it.  Ripening Hawthorn berries can be seen overhanging the beckside, a sure sign of autumn.

The dampness is beginning to create the right conditions for some fungi to flourish.  A beautiful Dryad's Saddle has again grown on the stump of an old Ash tree.

Unfortunately it was the wrong sort of rain for water droplets!
