A week ago I posted about the state of Haydn's Pool.
A dry year had taken it's toll on this little oasis in my local nature reserve.
The pool is man made and I wondered if the rubber liner used in it's construction had been leaking.
I noted that a pile of old tyres and some gravel had been left over on the far side and thought that maybe some sort of repair was in progress.
I e-mailed the local council who manage the reserve raising my concerns and to find out what was being done to save the pool.
I received a reply yesterday and was delighted to hear that the lack of rain this year was the reason for the pool drying up... not damage to the liner. I was told Haydn's relies totally on rainfall and the tyres and gravel are to be used to create a second island for nesting birds.
Plans are also in place to pump water up from Witton Brook which flows below to refill the pool.
So it all sounds fine... and hopefully it will be done sooner rather than later.
I will keep wandering over to see what progresses.
