A new flow levelling device at Bamff

As I walked along the ditch to visit the Wet Wood one day in July, or so, I noticed that the beavers had built a fine new dam. I thought little of it because there were no signs that water was seeping up into the field to the south.

Some weeks later, however, I noticed that the dam had grown and that the endrigg of the field to the south (the Ladyswell Field) was flooded. What to do? I must ask Lush (Lewis Smith) to come and build a pond leveller.

Lush was busy for a week or more, but he came last week and inserted this pipe and his trademark tall wire cage to protect the inlet of the levelling pipe.

What will the beavers do next?
