Storm Callum

Callum certainly made his presence known over the weekend with many branches and trees down locally. At Ricketts Mill water was the issue. The rivers came up with alarming speed and flooded much of the area around the lakes. This of course put pressure on the fences but Neil and his team had built them strong and despite torrents of water pouring through they held up well.

The storks were marooned for a while on a bank backed with thick vegetation. I was able to toss food to them which they gobbled up gratefully and thankfully the waters receded before we needed to mount a rescue mission.
