Habitat

Date Comment Bank Erosion Stability Bank Vegetation In Stream Cover Riffles Pools Bends Verge Vegetation Overall
21-07-2019 <p>Matured vegetation growing tall on east bank may be due to absence of willows.&nbsp; New native plants on the west bank.</p> Fair 3 Fair 6 Good 8 Good 4 Good 8 29
22-07-2018 <p>22/7/2018:&nbsp; Recent plantings - 2000 plants along east verge.&nbsp; Native vegetation recovering after removal of willows.</p> Fair 3 Fair 6 Good 8 Fair 3 Fair 6 26
18-06-2017 <p>Willows all removed (stags left in place), reducing overhead cover.&nbsp; Banks appear to be unstable.&nbsp; No revegetation as yet under the willows.&nbsp; Some regeneration occurring.&nbsp; In-stream vegetaion increased.</p> Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Fair 6 24
24-07-2016 Verge replanting is ongoing, resulting in good habitat. The willows are dropping old limbs over and into the creek. Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Good 4 Good 8 Fair 27
19-07-2015 19 July 2015: Similar to 2014. Some local erosion is occurring opposite a willow which is impeding the flow. Revegetation is progressing. Vegetation in an overflow side channel is good. Fair 3 Good 8 Fair 6 Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 26
22-06-2014 Similar to 2013. Vegetation hanging over the banks has not yet recovered from weed clearance and lowering of the pool. Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 24
23-06-2013 The banks of the pool remain sparsely vegetated. Some spot erosion. The sloping banks and verges downstream have improved vegetation. Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 6 Fair 3 Fair 6 Fair 24
