Birdland in the lovely Bourton-on-the-Water in Gloucestershire was within the scope to survey the River Windrush that flows through the town. It made for a few interesting days as the survey team worked through the famous attraction - birds were seen on the Windrush that have never been seen before on our British watercourses! The river provides an ideal habitat for some of the wading birds and river birds within Birdland. This project was also the first project that our new trainee surveyor Steve Drew experienced. It doesn't get much better than that Steve! Welcome aboard!
Storm Geomatics are being asked more and more to survey still waters to create 3D models of the geometry of the bed. The surveys can be used for a variety of reasons such as volume surveys, silt surveys or in order to plan leisure activities. Our most recent survey this month was undertaken on Haysden Water which is a recreational lake owned by the council. Plans and cross sections of the lake will be used to better organise the recreational activities that the lake is used for such as fishing and boating.
