If there's no water in the Southeast of England....

....then why would I see a full-to-the-brim reservoir while flying from London Heathrow to Paris Charles de Gaulle on Tuesday afternoon? As best I can tell, the reservoir in question is Bewl Bridge Reservoir, southeast of Tunbridge Wells.

Of course, there may be a good reason why this reservoir remains full - the water company may be saving it for last while using up underground supplies from deep wells. As a possibly hot, dry summer approaches this may not make a lot of sense as it is during the warm season (even in England) when the most evaporation will take place. Did I say a good reason?
