SU8886 : Wet, West of Cock Marsh

taken 11 years ago, near to Bourne End, Buckinghamshire, Great Britain

Wet, West of Cock Marsh
Wet, West of Cock Marsh
This marshy land [Aug 2017] may well still be wet from the torrential rain of two weeks previously that caused severe flooding downstream in the Thames Valley.

"This is one of Britain's very best pond sites - one of 70 locations which are known as 'Flagship Ponds'. This site is especially important because of the range of endangered and sensitive (to pollution) water plants it supports. In particular is Brown Sedge (bad name!) which is a UK super rarity, known in only 3 other places - but here there are thousands of plants. We (Freshwater Habitats Trust) are working with National Trust to help keep this very special place special.
