The importance of the floodplain is often overlooked, but it is just as much a part of the river as the channel. After several years of dry summers and winters, the River Thame has topped its banks and reminded us this of its true extent, spilling out across the fields. Please enjoy the above slideshow of Martin Routledge’s photos of the river near Upper Winchendon.
Can you help to tackle pollution in the Bear Brook and the streams of Aylesbury?

What is an Outfall Safari?
The Outfall Safari method involves systematically surveying the entire length of a river/stream to identify and locate polluting outfalls. This allows the pollution to be reported to Thames Water and the Environment Agency so that it can be tackled.
You must sign up to attend a training session if you want to take part. To find out more please see our website page.
We need the help of volunteers to walk lengths of stream in the Aylesbury area to locate polluting outfalls. Once located polluting outfalls are reported to Thames Water and the Environment Agency so that they can be tackled.
- Attend a training session to learn how to identify and map polluting outfalls.
- Walk your local streams to help protect them from pollution.
