A traditional form of water level management has returned to the Norfolk Broads now that the wind is once again being harnessed to pump water. Six wind pumps are being installed by the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) at Berney Marshes nature reserve. The pumps will enable subtle changes to water levels of the broads -- wide areas of shallow fresh water greatly used for recreational water sports -- to create ideal conditions for wildlife. Reserve warden Dave Barrett made the four metre high pumps to his own design after examining similar models elsewhere.
