    might look for a hiding place somewhere in this jungle they became aware of another sound the falling water which they had heard on their approach the day before Soon they reached a place where the river curved round in a bend from the east and here they came upon the broad shallow fall It was no more than a foot high one of those artificial falls common on the chalk streams made to attract trout Several were already rising to the evening hatch of fly Just above the fall a plank footbridge crossed the river Kehaar flew up circled the pool and perched on the hand rail This is more sheltered and lonely than the bridge we crossed last night said Blackberry Perhaps we could make some use of it You didn t know about this bridge Kehaar did you Na not know not see heem But ees goot pridge no von come I d like to go across Hazel rah said Blackberry Well Fiver s the rabbit for that replied Hazel He simply loves crossing bridges You carry on I ll come behind with Bigwig and Bluebell here The five rabbits hopped slowly along the planks their great sensitive ears full of the sound of the falling water Hazel who was not sure of his footing had to stop several times When at length he reached the further side he found that Fiver and Blackberry had already gone a little way downstream below the fall and were looking at some large object sticking out from the bank At first he thought that it must be a fallen tree trunk but as he came closer he saw that although it was certainly wooden it was not round but flat or nearly flat with raised edges some man thing One end of the thing was pressed into the bank but along its length it diverged sticking out slightly into the stream There were ripples round it for under the banks the current was as swift as in midstream on account of weed cutting and sound camp sheeting As Hazel came nearer he saw that Blackberry had actually scrambled on the thing His claws made a faint hollow sound on the wood so there must be water underneath Whatever it might be the thing did not extend downward to the bottom it was lying on the water Kehaar had alighted on the middle of the thing and was snapping away at something white Blackberry scuttered along the wood toward him and began to nibble at some kind of greenstuff After a little while Hazel also ventured out on the wood and sat in the sunshine watching the flies on the warm varnished surface and sniffing the strange river smells that came up from the water What is this man thing Kehaar he asked Is it dangerous Na no dangerous You not know Ees poat At Peeg Vater is many many poat Men make dem go on vater Ees no harm Kehaar
