Living on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales must be wonderfull! I'm envious. All of that Nature on your doorstep!! I hope you're far enough from Bradford/Leeds.
'My' polder is actually a former polder. A polder is an area of water, with dykes all around it, and the water pumped out (by windmills). What's left is low lying land surrounded by dykes, in this case it was called Crezéepolder and it has been farmland for a very long time.
The tidal area is still called Crezéepolder, eventhough it's not a polder anymore. The river dyke has been broken and the water has been let in again, to create a wildlife area. This has been done little over two years ago, but the birds found it very quickly. I can count almost fifty different species of birds/waterfowl in my Crezéepolder photo folders :))

We live on the southern edge of the Yorkshire Dales. Our home is due north of the Leeds and Bradford conurbation. Our reservoirs supply the populations of Leeds and Bradford. Our home is 5 km from the nearest shop, 4 km from the nearest church and 3 km from the nearest pub (which is very important in the UK). That sounds like a count down ! Our community has 20 houses. It is a good 2 hours drive to the sea and we have rivers and streams but certainly no tidal areas. I am quite fascinated by the idea of a polder and, sadly, know very little about it. From your photos I understand that it is teaming with bird life.

I'm not living near the sea either Heatha, I live to the South East of Rotterdam. This fresh water tidal area is quite small and next to a river :)

That sounds amazing, @schutkleur. I simply cannot imagine seeing camomile under water. We live a long way from the sea (for English people) and I miss the sea a lot. I used to live on the sea front iin Scotland many, many years ago.

Yes, there are a lot of wild flowers in the polder as well, even though it's a fresh water tidal area and at least three quarters of the polder gets submerged twice a day. Did you know camomile does survive getting flooded twice a day? It's a strange sight to see camomile flowers beneith the water surface :)

Heatha

Yes, @schutkleur, you are quite right. There are so many wild flowers out at the moment. We are so fortunate. As I walk around the reservoir, with my dog, I must see over 20 different flowers on the ground and as many again as the trees are in blossom.

They're lovely aren't they?? I find them in the polder as well. I believe it's Greater Stitchwort??
