This area is part of the landfill site area. When the photo was taken it was a flash, flooded as the water couldn't be released from the landfill site for fear of it being contaminated. It was a good spot for birds with several waterbird species breeding. It has since been drained, excavated and is now, in 2012, an active part of the landfill site TL4869 : Cottenham landfill site. New pools TL4869 : New pools for wildlife, Long Drove, Cottenham were dug to replace the flash.
