Thelnetham Fen

UK»England»Suffolk»Thelnetham Fen

Thelnetham Fen: Both Old Fen and Middle Fen are dominated by a mix of saw sedge and black bog rush, with shows of grass-of-Parnassus in the calcium-rich spring flushes. Marsh lousewort grows here along with stonewort an interesting algae whose skeleton can be seen in pools amongst the sedge.


Old Fen is now mainly alder carr and has dried out to some extent, but the mixed sedge fen in the middle is bursting with wild flowers. Breeding birds include snipe, with its drumming mating display, and grasshopper warbler, identified by its reeling song.
