Coatham Marsh

Coatham Marsh is a small reserve close to Warrenby. At this time of year, the reeds are resplendent and attract many birds.

Deeper in the reserve, a Sedge Warbler sings amongst the reeds (bottom left!).

He oftern flies aove the reeds to announce his presence.

The reed beds and surrounding ponds attract many insects, which in turn attracts House Martins.

In the bushes, a Reed Bunting sings.

Meanwhile back at Cafe Twitch, the nestlings are emerging.
