So we went for a little walk the other day around Llyn Brianne. This was the site Simon King visited for Spring Watch last year. The water levels were amazingly low, highlighting the problems we’re experiencing this year. Our current guests would probably say ‘what drought?’, as we have had some rain this week, but it will take a lot more rain to get the water table to rise. The drill team arrive at Banceithin on Tuesday to drill the bore hole. Then a different team come to install the pumps etc, so as long as the water pumps clear, we should have a new alternative source of water in a couple of weeks. Until then our spring is hanging on in there!
