Wolla Bank Reedbed

Extensive reed bed.

Having been partially scraped for clay for the repair of sea defences following the east-coast floods of 1953, the area is now an extensive reedbed. Reed warbler, sedge warbler, reed bunting and whitethroat all nest. Bearded tits are occasional visitors in winter. Marsh harriers occur in spring and short-eared owls in winter. There are small pools and grassy areas with sea club-rush and sea couch. Small stands of sea-buckthorn occur here.
