Just had over 90mm in a few days and it tested out the new earthworks. New pond (see photos in post before this one):

Chicken veggie circles were mulched and planted before the rain, nice and wet now:

Top dam (built Nov) quite full now from runoff and pumping from a couple of other sources:

Pond (also from Nov) by caravan overflowing:

New hand dug swale below caravan full; will get pipe in and mulch soon, then plant in nitrogen fixers:

Plenty of water seeping/flowing into dam down the front :)
