Marston Marsh

This site (26 ha) comprises floodplain grazing marsh on the northern side of the River Yare. There are numerous dykes throughout the site, which are managed on a rotational basis. The grass is managed through summer grazing by cattle and mowing.

Also included in the site are some small areas of damp woodland. Willows on site are managed through pollarding. There are five wildlife ponds.

Species of interest include: water voles, otters (probable), orchids, as well as general good marsh flora, dragonflies. Geese use site in winter and a snipe was also recorded this winter.

Access: kissing gates, tracks, limited boardwalk (Marston and Eaton are linked with the Marston-Eaton link path along the edge of Eaton Golf Course).
