Ponds, Lakes and Water everywhere you look. That is what February 2013 in Ratmale looked like!

three days of rain even in Feb good for some and bad for others!!!

Ratmale from February 2nd to 5th 2013

 Table and chairs in the veranda overlooking a pond with three other ponds with water just beyond
 Rocking in the chair whilst watching the amazing bird life and other interesting sights, like the otter who dropped in looking for fish in the pond and the pair of serpent eagles looking for prey
 Without putting any fish the pond once empty of water is now full and somehow fish have also appeared from no where to populate and eat the food available. SO the king fishers 4 varieties can be seen during the course of the day.

 The Water level of the Ratmale tank is above spill level with three sand bag height of water above spill already. I understand that this time there is sufficient water for the whole field for the next cultivation also.
 The reflection of the water on the bank was a rare sight in the stillness of the day.
