About the reserve
Known as Anderby Marsh, it will be transformed over time into a wildlife haven of traditional coastal grazing marsh and reedbed. It is expected that this new nature reserve will help support a range of conservation priority birds including lapwing, curlew, redshank, snipe, barn owl, starling and reed bunting.
With the expansion of reedbed it is also hoped that marsh harrier and bittern may be attracted and otters, which formerly visited the adjacent Wolla Bank Pit, may also re-colonise the area.
