Waterfowl Wetlands

In 2009 we decided to re-establish the old water meadow drainage ditch to create a wetland for waterfowl. Special machinery was used to scrape out the soil to form a shallow dish shaped ditch. The photographs below show the ditch under construction and an aerial photos of it in October before flooding and in January as it started to fill with water.
