After another deluge yesterday ( ca.38mm in approximately 18 hrs), flood levels have shot back up again today and are still rising, and it is quite possible that it will reach a similar level to that of 24-25th December. The trail between West Mead and Winpenny hides is flooded and is likely to remain so for at least several days, cutting off Winpenny and Nettley's hide. The view from the Hanger is pretty self-explanatory.
Thousands of ducks remain on site, and there were ca. 200 common and herring gulls avidly feeding on the north brooks this morning, no doubt exploiting the huge amounts of food being washed in from the Stor-Arun confluence.
