As I understand it (possibly not all that well) a sinkhole as the wiki
defines it
is a large hole in the ground which water enters and vanishes without
What Ordnance Survey calls "sinks" appears to be more akin to a hole in a
course that water enters and vanishes.  What Ordnance Survey calls "spreads"
is a sand or soil or gravel surface that water vanishes into without
pooling and
without there being any noticeable hole.

I'm not sure if any of those fit what you have and maybe what you have is
more of a network of intermittent streams.
