It's taken some time but the final works for our Natural England Stewardship scheme are now completed. The rills have been opened up to the feeder ditches and filled for the winter, the result is fantastic.
Combined with the existing waterways these new rills give a comprehensive range of island types and sizes, it also allows us to maximise the water coming into the site from the River Cam, hopefully keeping the area wet well into the summer, essential for breeding waders
Many thanks again to Multi-flight for the photography.
