Badger Dingle: waterfall and pond

Badger Dingle: waterfall

As a tributary of the river Worfe passes through the Dingle at Badger, it is first held back to make a pool which is larger than either of the two pools in the centre of the village.

The water is then released to form one of the few waterfalls which can be seen in the vicinity of Wolverhampton (above).

Badger Dingle: pool with water weed

The pool was well covered with surface pondweed in mid-February. Notice the tracks where some water bird has been, thinning the weed in its wake.
