    Earth moved to create new Wiltshire wetland area

    More than 30,000 cubic metres of earth is to be moved from a meadow to create a new wetland area for migrating birds in Wiltshire.
     
    The meadow, next to Langford Lakes, is part of a reserve which already features three lakes near Wylye.
    It is hoped the changes will increase the range of habitats at the lakes and bring in more wetland bird species.
     
    Reserve warden Chris Riley said the work was likely to be completed in three months.
    He added that the start of the work had already brought in some more unusual species.
     
    "We're already seeing lots more migrating waders coming in to take advantage of the bare ground, birds like dunlin, redshank and lapwing like to poke about in the mud for food," he said.
