I did postulate, some weeks ago, that when Finch pond jnr first appeared, perhaps Inert were defining the new northern shore of Finch pond and that junior would be filled in. Considering how much effort went into crafting the pond and the nascent Finch pond jnr II, I was somewhat surprised today to see that Finch pond jnr had, indeed, been filled in.
Looking at the piles of spoil piled up on the north shore of 'Finch pond jnr II' and along the new north shore of Finch pond, I would say that Finch pond jnr II will be filled in before it is even complete, and that the north shore of Finch pond will extend further south.
In the meantime, our stalwart pump keeps pumping, and water levels in all the lakes (including those on Fleet hill farm) continue dropping. Alas, I feel I will never be able to cross the channel between Cormorant lake and Finch pond as I doubt the water level will ever drop far enough.
Note. Most of the remainder of the school holidays are looking a little fraught, so updates may be a little light or delayed. I have to attend family events; a three line whip from the memsahib.
I've redone the map as I noticed I got the boundaries incorrect. I had inadvertently included the sewage works and private woodland as part of the works. Whoops!
Also I've added a scale and changed the colour of the infill area to brown, to reflect that it is now dry land. Not entirely sure how clear this colour is. The extent of the infill on the map is approximate.
OK, it is more of a 180 than 360. There hasn't been much change on the west side since I last did this exercise.
