Blue House Farm

UK»England»Essex»Blue House Farm

Blue House Farm: The farm is a 605 acre Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) as part of the River Crouch Marshes, notified for its wetland bird species and rare water beetles.

The flat fields between the farmhouse and the sea wall are used in winter as a feeding ground by brent goose. Often more than 2,000 geese are seen, together with large numbers of wigeon grazing on the short turf.

Throughout the year hares are abundant and are most easily seen on these fields where cover is scarce. Skylarks also thrive, and are often heard singing high overhead in spring and summer.
