Maybe a couple of those suckers in the Waveney would make the organised swim debate obsolete.

Seals upstream are not that uncommon - some years ago one winter, there was one in the reach above Horning for some time.

He even stayed over part of the close season I think!!!

That was a nice shot of Potter Bridge with unusual visitors on 1st April.  A few days later it was not quite so funny  -  on 5th April at 4pm (according to the Gov.uk river level website) the level at Repps was 0.71m, which equates to 5ft 4 inches under the bridge!

Later that afternoon I took a few photos, including this one through the window of the pilot's office.  It may be a familiar view to many, but with a difference.  I stress that unlike some other photos posted recently, this has NOT been photo-shopped.  You'll see that the gauge only goes as far as 5ft 6in, and the marker is just beyond that.

As far as myself (and the large group I was with) was concerned, this was a bit of a nuisance.  We had been hoping to pass through the bridge on Tuesday with our fleet of 16 yachts and 4 motor cruisers from Martham, but could not.  It was very quiet on Horsey, and on Hickling and on Heigham Sound and even at West Somerton;  we visited them all several times during the week  Smile   We even debated as to whether it was better to be stuck above or below the bridge, but did not come to a firm conclusion.

And here is another photo, showing the bridge itself at around 6pm on Thursday 5th April, from the upstream side.  The gauge is about 2in more conservative than the one in the Pilot's Office.  

Speaking of the Pilot's Office, the river was covering the grass and ground between it and the river.

Would be interesting to see the response if the river levels being were this on a regular basis and only small day boats being able to pass through....

Excellent shot Steve, unusual sighting, I personally haven’t witnessed this kind of sighting in the 26 years of Boating on the Broads.
