Fen Harvesting at Carlton & Oulton Marshes

Fen harvesting was required to increase biodiversity at Carlton & Oulton Marshes. The site, which benefits from a four year rotation, is now in need of cutting to improve the vegetation structure and create more edges for wildlife.

This project would allow the Suffolk Wildlife Trust to bring in a specialist fen harvester to create pioneer cuts and corridors into dense, inaccessible wet reed with circular pools at the end.

Grant amount:£2,540

Waveney River Centre will fund this project exclusively from their Love the Broads’ donations
