This little lake - more of a pond really, I suppose - fascinates me. It’s very conveniently situated quite close to one of the common’s easy access points, where there’s always parking to be had, so it’s a great place to go if you have time only for maybe a short quick walk.
It’s also quite intriguing. As you’ll see in the pictures, it’s clearly not natural, the giveaway being the remnants of a road leading to it. The lake is obviously a hole left when something was dug up and removed by the airbase demolishers.
It’s also, in my view, a fine barometer of how much rain we’ve had recently, with its depth varying from zero during a hot period to over a metre when there’s been a lot of rain.
I’m starting the album off with a short video of the lake, shot from aloft with my Phantom quadcopter.
