Wild About The Wensum

This event is taking place at Pensthorpe Wildlife Park, near Fakenham, Norfolk

My previous post from Chester gave some pictures of the various architectural gems in this fine City. Here are a few taken in and around the cathedral – not such good quality as all I had to hand was my phone camera.

Over the past few months I’ve been learning about the use of horses for the extraction of timber. Last week I had a chance to actually witness it first hand and learn about the type of situations when horse powered timber extraction may be the most appropriate.

In Norfolk we’re fortunate to have a relatively rare type of habitat known as a ‘Pingo’. Essentially, a pingo is a large pond or lake that is fed by an aquifer located below the pingo, a spring at the base of the pingo feeds it with water from the aquifer.

Unlike regular ponds and lakes that are fed by rainfall either directly into the pond or from the surrounding rainfall catchment, the water level of pingos can be high even during periods of low rainfall. However, pingos can also periodically dry up at times when the water level within the aquifer is low.
