Madeira - Levada Walk 2

This is a very good walk we did from the HPB (Holiday Property Bond) site including a section along a levada, which are the irrigation channels running past the farms.
The levada is on the right.
One of the sluices which allow water to flow to the fields.
The bailiff allows each farm water around every 13 days in the summer - 'off peak' water is freely available.
Emerging from a tunnel which carried the levada through a mountain.
I guess this is a scarecrow?
