I think he's referring to Maymont park in Richmond.

Are you fairly close to the river in Isle of Wight? Anytime I hunt in the trees away from the river all I mainly shoot are woodies and a few mallards. If you're far from the river, do you have any suggestions as to how I can get a wider variety of birds to use my water holes?

its a beaver swamp, and probably the best thing u can do is widen out and clean up the holes, make them more accessable to the ducks... cut down some trees and mov e some downed ones... alos you can always get some aqautic plants and try to establish some food in and around the holes... thats all i really know to do that will really help
