Update - 29 January - Here are some photos showing the water pouring into the Far Fen Lake (that's the first pond on the right after Fen Drayton Lakes bus stop as you head towards Cambridge). The water comes in from the Ferry Lagoon ( the big pond on the left just east of Fen Drayton bus stop) which in turn must be fed from the river. There are a couple of small bridges under the busway which allow this flow to happen. Presumably, their small flow capacity explains why the Fen Drayton to Swavesey section stays flooded once the river level drops.
