The site smelled so strongly of decaying sheep carcass, I could not stay and take any photographs. The site often smells of rotting carcass, but today was particularly revolting.
Also, the stream was covered in willow leaves and other bits of willow that fall during Autumn. I could not tell if the creek was clear or murky.
