Just read this thread thru for the first time. What a wonderful project.

Had a gawk the other day, it had plenty ducks in residence.  Cool I didn't go too close as there may have been ducklings there too.

All I'm seeing is photobucket icons instead of photos of what sounds like a great project. Something wrong?

Update from Shankspony on The Thinking Hill project this thread is all about. He can't post on here at the moment so has asked me to share on his behalf:

"Hi all, project is going pretty well, Hard to see trees planted right now, and tree establishment on this site has been my major issue, but Im getting there.

First pic, shows some of the Carex grasses that are starting to fill in now.



Second pic shows some extra sediment trapping that im having to do off side creeks. the amount of sediment im having to deal with after this reakishly wet winter has blowen my mind. In that regard this wetland has been great for improving downstream water quality, but I will spend most of my budget this summer dealing with it and future proofing.



Third pic, I have doubled the fenced off area downstream now and planted that area out in mostly pines, which will hopefully pay for future works and provide pheasant habitat as well.



Also I built a new wetland down stream on a drained swamp. Its come up Fantastically! I have learnt alot about where and how to build wetlands now, and my focus over next few years will be on reinstating drained swamps that are currently part of paddocks, and fencing the valley floor stream to maximise game bird habitat.







Merry Xmas, Shankspony."
