The Ouse Washes

On my commute to school, I pass through the Ouse Washes. 



These are a managed landscape, which have a special atmosphere to them. Over the last few weeks there has been a focus on flooding in other parts of the country, but here in this very low lying area, great efforts have been made to manage surface water.

They are a perfect habitat for birds and also a wildlife reserve.

How much do you take note of the landscape you pass through on your journey to school ?
As the nights draw out, I'm going to be taking the various turnings off the main roads that I take and explore the communities that I've been driving close to for the last few months...
