Epworth Turbary

UK»England»Lincolnshire»Epworth Turbary

Epworth Turbary: This reserve is of considerable historic and scientific interest. There are also areas of reed swamp and mixed fen vegetation, where the rare fen sedge, Cladium mariscus, which was once widely used for ridge thatching, can be seen. Other parts of the reserve have a series of fen and wet heath conditions and a considerable area of birch woodland of varying age.


Plants in the fen areas include yellow and purple-loosestrife, meadow-rue, sneezewort and devil's-bit scabious. Among moths the wood tiger is well established. Breeding birds include tree pipit, warblers, finches, green and great spotted woodpeckers and woodcock.
