There is a wetland on my street!

Okay, so to be precise there is a wetland at the end of my street but that doesn’t change the fact that despite living in an unfortunately urban environment there is a place with frogs, dragonflies and apparently turtles at the end of the street.

The artificial wetlands were created by the local council as a way to clean stormwater from the surrounding streets and are maintained from what I can work out. While I was down there this morning talking to a random stranger about turtles and mysterious creatures rippling the weeds the wetland looked nice enough you could almost pretend you weren’t in the city!

See how you can aim the camera to ignore the fact there are houses twn metres away!
