Burrator in Winter

Here are a few pictures taken in January 2012. The reservoir is quite full compared to how it is during the fishing season. In quite a few places it would be difficult to get a back-cast when the water level is so high. (Double click on a picture to enlarge and view in sequence).

Even with high water levels there is no overflow

Walking round the reservoir the most immediately striking feature is the amount of tree felling that has taken place. Presumably, this has been a necessary response to the discovery of Larch Disease in the timber. See for further details.
