Floods on the River Cuckmere as seen from near High and Over
Floods similar to those in the photo occur annually but rather than maintain costly existing flood prevention measures or introduce new ones, the official plan is to let the water meadows revert to their natural state. It is hoped that by doing so this will encourage wildlife and provide a watery habitat for both local and migrant birds.
