An investigation into water bodies of the Norfolk hinterland of the Wash (ENRR437)

This 1999 report monitored the changes over time, and the number and type of waterbodies used by the wildfowl in the hinterlands of the Wash using existing aerial photographs and Ordnance Survey maps. 376 waterbodies were identified in the Norfolk hinterland of the Wash from Hunstanton to the county boundary. The main changes observed related to the loss of smaller waterbodies due to changing agricultural practices. It was not possible to identify uses made of the waterbodies. The study demonstrated the potential use of existing aerial photographs in identifying and monitoring waterbodies which may be important to wildfowl.
