Dropshort Marsh

UK»England»Bedfordshire»Dropshort Marsh

Dropshort Marsh is a living example of what has disappeared. A particularly good variety of sedges and rushes are found here.


Large pollarded willows line the course of a spring that flows through the reserve. A second spring feeds the marsh, towards the south-western end of this L-shaped meadow. Mature hedgerows of hazel, hawthorn and blackthorn provide autumn nuts and berries for foraging birds and small mammals, interspersed with tall oak and ash trees.
