Some dead leaves at the bottom of the stream, near the banks. The water level was above average.

The water level was about a third to a half way up the pipe. Upstream, now the vegetation has died away, I could see that this stream is fed by two other streams.

This stream has returned to the level (depth & flow), after the recent rainfall, seen in the spring

The stream has been dry for a while but a pond has now been created, probably as consequence of recent rainfall that has been heavy at times.

Not tested. Stream still dry. A local person (the same person we encountered at the corner of Withies Lane/Polsted Lane) said this stream historically often dries out in the summer.

This stream now consists of a small pond. If there is no rain over the next month it will be completely dry.

Not much evidence of plant life in the stream. Evidence of silting/drowned worms. The water was flowing more slowly than when I visited the previous weekend.
