Your dataset indicates that this waterbody has a moderate ecological status.

Moderately elevated phosphate concentrations can favour the formation of algal blooms.
These values are expected to vary throughout the year as a result of weather patterns and changes in land use. Please help us to better understand this ecosystem by continuing to make measurements.

Notes: 
Water very low (just under 20cm on Damery Gauge). The observations on plants, fish and aquatic birds relate to a fishing session between around 100 - 600m downstream of the sampling point. I caught grayling, brown trout, minnow. I saw a pair of kingfishers and a duckling. I saw water crowfoot growing in the water.
