The Rise and Fall of the Etang de Ribaloche


The main car park in the Forest of Preuilly is at a small manmade lake called the Etang de Ribaloche. Here is a series of photos showing how much the water level varies with the weather and season.

I suppose this étang is only fed with rain ir snow? No creek, even very small? How's the situation in the Brenne?

Yes, this étang is just rain fed, no spring, no stream. The Brenne is extremely dry, with two serious forest fires this summer -- unheard of!
