About Chapel Marsh Pit

Another pit created in 1953 after clay was extracted to repair the sea defences. The flooded pit has marginal reedbeds and aquatic plants with planting screens of willows round the banks of the pits to reduce disturbance to birds.

Lorem Birdus

What you will see

15 species of duck recorded, mainly as winter visitors with grebes, divers and wild swans also often seen in winter. In summer breeding species include reed and sedge warblers, lesser whitethroat, and great crested and little grebes.
