“Photos of the river towards Sidford. In quite full flood this morning. The trees are mainly alder, and the medium sized vegetation is mainly Japanese Knotweed. The bottom photo shows the route of the river about five years ago. After really heavy rain, the river returns temporarily to its old route.”
Taken on the morning of 23rd January by Richard Eley at Fortescue.
“We have giant snowdrops on the land – I have no idea why.”
