About the reserve

Known as Anderby Marsh, this reserve is managed as a traditional coastal grazing marsh. It is hoped in future that this nature reserve will help support a range of conservation priority birds including lapwing, curlew, redshank, snipe, barn owl, starling and reed bunting. In recent years the marsh has attracted a couple of rare birds such as black-winged stilt and glossy ibis. Wigeon, teal and snipe are regular on the marsh in the winter months.

The adjacent reedbed fringes attract numerous reed, sedge and cetti’s warblers. Marsh harrier is a regular sight in the summer as is cuckoo.
