The Power of the river in spate

I was delighted to recieve an image from Glyn Howells from Farson Digitals web camera network which was taken at the Falls of Feugh location where they have a web camera in situ.

This image was captured close to 6pm when the River Feugh had risen to 3.5 metres on the SEPA measuring station and shows how fast the river must have been flowing-albeit daylight was staring to go.

Compare this to an image of the river at a more normal height from exactly the same location.

Quite an amazing contrast there. Interestingly the following day the Heughhead fishing beat above the falls recorded 14 salmon landed by anglers !
