Notes

  • Overcast and calm at the moment. Have had extensive rain fall over past 2 weeks ( 118.6 MM total from Apr 26th to May 14th ) Marsh flooded more than usual and much more than when first tested this spring. White swan pair flew in while I tested, Canada Geese, ducks and red-winged blackbirds around. Fairly good current of water flowing under the culvert from other side to where we test on the east side of the roadway.

  • Overcast, cool ( + 4 or 5 ) and windy day with less than 2 MM rainfall in past 24 hrs. This location being tested is at the end of a stream that collects water from a wide region of farmland & forest to the west and here it enters the marsh area of the Black River which then flows eventually into Lake Ontario. Pair of white swans on the river.
