Work has begun on the environmental upgrade to our local small lake.
This provides an impression of the size of the lake. It's not massive, but it is very silted up.
As the work continues, I'll post progress, and the activity of the incumbent wildlife.

Hi Jack,

I like V3&4.

That reflection's a bit different. It works well.

Bren.

I know your subject is the dredging work, Jack, and Vs 1 and 2 are good reportage images, but, like Bren, I am very attracted by Vs 3 and 4 of the ducks and reflections, and the way the reflections are further distorted by the movement of the ducks.

You're right Pamela. But, in reality, I'm equally interested in how the various wildfowl will fare during the course of the works.
I suspect that when the reed-beds get ripped out, everything live will disappear for this year.
Which is not ideal as they'll have to start foraging for winter accommodation.
I just hope they return next year.
I reckon it will take two full years for the reed-beds to return to their present level of protection.

I liked the ripples in the reflections too.
Not something you see every day. And when you do, usually the camera's not round your neck GrinGrin
I was lucky today. Not brilliant shots ~ but a bit different

Now that the vast majority of the water has drained, or been pumped away, the ducks are in their element.
A rich source of food is now available to them that was too deep, unless they dived for it, when the water was at its normal level.
I'm doing a photographic and written record of the work, and a the survival & preservation of the wildlife, which is available to view on my website, if you wish to follow the progress.
I do appreciate that the website is essentially a commercial one, and as such contravenes ePz's ethos about websites.
But the website address is http://www.turnaroundartwork.co.uk.
If the mods/management choose to remove the address, you may PM me for the info Wink
