Abstract

Wetlands have traditionally provided people with food from fisheries and wildfowling. In the fenlands of eastern England in 1724, the numbers of wildfowl were “incredible, and the accounts the country people give of the numbers they sometimes take, are such that one scarce dares report it!” (Darby 1983, page 141). These wetlands are now farmland.
