A Walk along the Burnieshed Path

The rains of the last few days have more than refilled the ponds.

The overflows from the big dam below the drive are running again and, as the water level downstream is higher than it has ever been owing to the heightening of the other dams further downstream, I begin to wonder how long it would be before a salmon (were such a fish to consider swimming as far upstream as this) would leap the main part of the dam and not have to make do with the overflows.

The sight of the felled and bark stripped birch tree in the middle distance makes me wonder why beavers would be eating such an indigestible food at this time of year.
