Abstract

Blakeney Freshes in an area of low-lying grazing marsh on the North Norfolk coast, formed by the reclamation of salt marshes behind Blakeney spit (Figures 1 & 2). The area has long been recognised for its conservation value and was identified by Ratcliffe (1977) to be a Grade 1 site in the Nature Conservation Review. Reid et al. (1989) reiterated this describing the site as being of “key importance” due to it comprising of one of the most extensive areas of oligohaline-mesohaline grazing marsh in Norfolk. The marshes are particularly noted for a range of wintering and breeding birds, but also for the aquatic flora and fauna which inhabit the 25 km of drainage ditches that form a network across the site (Foster & Jackson 2000).
