Estimated year unit will go Favourable: Confidence in estimate:
Comment: No loss in extent. Water levls above minimum targets. Species diversity is below targets though a number of good indicator species such as soft hornwort, bur reed and frogbit recorded. The invasive species Elodia nutalli found in main EA ditch but remains absent elsewhere. Water is slightly Turbidity (may be due to recent rainfall and harvest should be better at other times of year). The late stage ditches have significant cover of lemna and some algal dominance found in small lengths. Variety in successional stages has improved with recent cutting of ditch vegetation opening out the channel of sections, improving water flow and species diversity.
