washes (noun)/cattle were grazing on the washes


Senior Member
Hello everybody,
I need some help with the word washes. I found it in a magazine about wetlands. The whole sentence is:
"In July the reserve was drying out nicely and cattle were grazing on the washes"
I understand the sentence, but I am totally lost with that word. I guess it refers to some specific habitat (like a medow) but I dont find the word in Spanish.

Thank you very much in advance!
