The Wilden Marsh Blog

Monthly Archives: July 2017

Life can be so stressful for a rare breed cow at Wilden Marsh Nature Reserve.


I found three separate otter runs from the River Stour to the Lagoon Field’s southern lagoon today; I’ll try to video the users.

  Adult gatekeepers feed primarily on bramble (Rubus fruticosus agg.), carline thistle (Carlina vulgaris), devil’s-bit scabious (Succisa pratensis), fleabane (Pulicaria dysenterica), hemp agrimony(Eupatorium cannabinum), wild privet (Ligustrum vulgare), ragwort (Jacobaea vulgaris), red clover (Trifolium patense), thistles (Cirsium and Carduus species), thyme (Thymus praecox) and water mint (Mentha aquatica).
