This is a sequence of 12 photographs from a collection spanning several years, taken every few days from the same spot at approximately the same time of day (early afternoon) though the exact time depended on work pressures. They show a copse of willow, poplar and alder on a flood plain through the last year that serious snow fell and caused significant flooding.
The meadow is not as diverse as it might be for a place receiving no artificial fertilizer or spraying. It is grazed during the growing season by various cattle, and then by geese through the winter and early spring. A similar field on the far side of the river is significantly more diverse. The only difference is that cattle are taken off around Lammas and a hay cut is then taken.
