30-10-2013 There was high water flow in the creek today following 48mm of rain in past week. Although the bank vegetation is good, there is a lot of wind blown debris (shrubs) in the creek at the site we use. This made collecting difficult so we moved down stream to a spot where although the water was flowing strongly it was safer and easier to collect. Fair 3 Good 8 Good 8 Fair 3 Good 8 Good 30
