Stream of consciousness

You may not have realised there was a stream flowing through Filnore Woods.  In summer it often dries up, though not this year, and the banks have become very overgrown.  On our work morning today a lot of fallen trees and tangled undergrowth were cleared to let more light to the stream banks and to move silt and dead wood from the stream bed to prevent flooding.

The cleared banks should be colonised by
smaller plants now that more light can get through
