The un-spoilt coast contains stretches
of salt marshes, grazing marshes and coastal lagoons of
Dingle Marsh. On the hill is the reserve's woodland and
farmland with further north the reed beds. This is a
nature reserve rich in special wildlife managed by the
Reedshank, Avocets, Lapwing, Ringed Plover,
Oystercatcher, Snow buntings all can be seen here. On
the shingle bank plants which have adapted to the
harshness of life by the sea grow in profusion.
Dingle Marshes is one of only a handful of sites in
England where the tiny starlet sea anemone is found.
Despite its national rarity, it can occur in very large
numbers, sometimes more than 10,000 per square metre.
Starlet sea anemones live in the mud at the bottom of
the sheltered coastal lagoons. Visit this coast in
winter and you will find the wading birds replaced by
roosting and feeding ducks and a walk up the beach to
Walberswick may be rewarded by the white flutter of snow
