Pictures and a message from Clive Knight, long-time Friend of the Park:
Could this be the first sign of beaver activity in the park? What do you think?
You have probably seen already, but the floodwater has cut channels on either side of the dam on the pond. They are gradually being enlarged with the heavy rain. We will need to fix this when we are allowed to meet again.
Reply from Ian Bushell, FoSCP Coordinator:
We’ll report the beavers to Autumnwatch and I’ll put clearing the stream on the to-do list.
The dam breach is definitely a project for post-lockdown; we will need to get the Countryside Team and perhaps some heavy machinery involved as well.
