A Photo But What Does It Tell You?

Post by Miles » May 17th, 2019, 4:19 pm

I am not going to comment on this unless folks don't get it.
If you need a clue?
Native American folks realised that if they set fire to the earth, that's earth not the Earth, it would fertilise and cause growth of grass
The buffaloes would come early.
If the bank is eroded, it will form another bank of fresh highly fertile Broads juice. The result is as you see.
Solution is, look at the coast.
To stop shifting sands, simple process.
You will never stop speeds so how about using an organic solutions?
They have been deployed at How Hill more likely to hold the bank together but could be used also to hold it back because old Mother Nature rules this nest.

Going to sound like 'Trigger' from Only Fools and Horses. What are you trying to say.

The speeding of boats has caused fresh silt to deposit on the edges creating the reeds moving in on the channel. I noticed it last year but this year it has really moved in. It's an area of unregulated speeding and it shows the effects more clearly.

May be if people saw exactly what is happening as you have pointed out , they would be a little bit more considerate and in less of a hurry to get from A to B. Thanks for the explanation.

No they don't give a toss
In this spot alone you see swans nests and greylags nesting. The swans set themselves back a bit from the water but the geese are within inches.
If people knew the devastation wash had on these nests alone, they would stop blaming the otters for bird population levels.
A simple 30 second video shown to all hirers before they are shown the ropes would probably do more to stop speeding boats of all sorts than any fine could do.
However, apathy appears to dominate the implementation of solutions on these waterways and forums can at least hope to raise awareness of problems.
