Oulton Marshes

UK»England»Suffolk»Oulton Marshes

Oulton Marshes: The fen meadows lie on top of deep layers of waterlogged peat and support many rare plants. In early summer there is a fabulous display of southern marsh orchid, marsh marigold and ragged-robin, together with the scarcer bogbean, bog pimpernel and marsh cinquefoil.


The taller fen contains plants such as marsh pea and marsh sowthistle that are rare outside the Broads. Breeding birds like grasshopper, reed and sedge warbler and the rare Cettis warbler have also settled in.


The network of dykes which divide the marshes are full of aquatic wildlife and are noted for dragonfly and damselfly. The margins support a range of wetland plants including brookweed, arrowhead and purple loosestrife.
