Seasonal pond, Hayes Common. 9 February 2014.
This is what is known as a seasonal pond. The water level is high in winter, low in summer. It usually contains some water, but occasionally it dries up completely.
Seasonal pond, Hayes Common. 12 May 2011.
This is the same pond in May 2011, from the same angle, but lower down; where I was standing then is under water now. That little grassy mound is almost always above the water level. This winter's rain is having exceptional results even where there are no major floods.
There is a flooded spot near here. I'll put it in the next post.
