The autumn rains have fallen and now the first significant frosts of winter have turned the landscape white.
Raised water levels make the 100 yard dam pool look much better.
Preparations for winter continue. A fair number of birch trees have been felled in this corner of the Wet Wood.
This canal has been extended out of the pool created by the dam in the photograph below.
You can see the branch canal off to the left of the picture and what may turn into another tributary further back and to the right.
This dam was first built in autumn 2004, but neglected for a long time. As you see it is now being built up again.
