03-01-2019 <p>The water flow is fairly slow today, it appears still but it is flowing. There is a slight oily patch on the surface close to the bridge otherwise the water is clear. I can see some Crows, Magpies, Butterflies and grass hoopers. No farm animals to be seen today. There are a few Gorse bushes around that have sprouted new growth also a few Blackberry bushes.</p> Poor 2 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 VeryPoor 2 19
03-01-2018 <p>The water appears slightly milky this year, I cannot see any signs of waterflow however it is still continuous. Slightly a bit more bank vegetaion this year also some blackberries and other weeds, otherwise not much change from last year.</p> Poor 2 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 VeryPoor 2 19
05-01-2017 <p>If I could rate both sides of the bridge seperately I would rate downstream very poor and upstream fair to good. Looking downstream not a very nice looking site, it has paddocks coming down to the river on both sides with hardly any fences to protect the banks from livestock. Looking upstream there is a lot more bank and verge vegetation with better fences to restrict livestock but it is still acccesable to livestock, the vegetation however does have some weeds and Blackberries starting to take hold again. Water flow is on the low side of medium. Water appears fairly clear but there is a green slimy area downstream of the bridge. I first noticed this slime appear in March 2016, it cleared up by May 2016 and I have not seen it appear again untill today Jan 2017. I can hear some birds but cannot see any wildlife, water creatures or livestock any where. Photo in diary.</p> Poor 2 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 VeryPoor 2 19
12-01-2016 Refer to diary for photos & notes. Very quiet here today. Could not sight any wildlife or water creatures, only movement is from 3 sheep playing jump through the hole in the fence, no other livestock to be seen anywhere. (Which is unusual) It was a very hot day yesterday so maybe all the animals & water creatures are having a sleep in today. Poor 2 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 VeryPoor 2 Poor 19
