This is really nice. I am not used to seeing a wetland area so open. Ours are covered with tall brush etc.

This one is relatively new. It's being re-developed from farm land back to a wetland. A couple of years ago all the children from the school (with a bunch of parents, myself included) trouped down there with spades and a whole lot of native tree seedlings. We planted hundreds. So in a few more years, this area will be grown over too. There are lots of ducks, swans and native pukeko that nest down there.

Great picture - and the story behind the picture is interesting. Bring back a piece of nature.

Thanks! This one is getting old. I must go back for an update.

Cheers, Lisa
