We`ve just returned home after cruising from Thurne to Wayford, up the Ant. Does anyone know what all the earthworks are in aid of between johnson street dyke and the bend by the mill? There appears to be a deliberate attempt to flood the area, with raised retaining banks to hold the water there. We spent several hours on this stretch last year watching a pair of barn owls, but now their patch is under water.Any ideas?

How Hill Trust are building new reed beds to encourage  two pairs of Bitterns to breed there.  when it is finished , it should be a really good habitsat for them and interesting for passers by as well.

It's called Buttle Marsh. You get a much better view of it if you walk round the other side. There is more information under the "Favourite Walks" thread.
