The real 'source' of a river rising in the blanket bog has multiple sources almost like the roots of a tree sucking in water or the early roots of Evolution in the tree of life. When you get in close to watch the movement of water at the watershed then the whole concept of 'a' source becomes meaningless. A drop of rain might land on the mire and of its splash droplets some might end up in the Tyne and some in the Tees. 0
