The recent heavy rain has seen the river running fast and coloured, washing many of the leaves and branches downstream and eventually out to sea at Sandwich.
We are fortunate to have volunteers from the ‘Our Stour Project’ who monitor the invertebrate life of the river each month. This provides valuable information on the general health of this fragile aquatic environment. The two notices, one at each river bridge in the park, provide detail about Chalk streams and their flora and fauna.
We are pleased that we have confirmed separate sightings of a pair of Ravens who are making regular visits. They are very distinctive in that they are the largest of the crow family and make a characteristic croak in flight. It will be interesting if they set up a home in the area!
