BEAVERS, FLOATING RUBBISH, OTTERS, MINK AND THE FLOODED WOOD PASTURE
The marsh is brown and pretty much leafless, but plants are beginning to grow. New grass is 50 mm long, and the old grass is turning bright green. There is promise in the air. The river levels have dropped significantly after recent floods; plastic, aluminium, and glass drinking bottles are strewn along the banks. Floating rubbish is less of a problem than in recent years, but there is still too much of it.
My mind is on the future of the marsh, and how to make the most of available resources.
