As part of a series of measures to protect the freshwater habitats at Titchwell Marsh Nature Reserve on the north Norfolk coast, Salix has supplied the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB) 2,000 metres of Rock Rolls.
Titchwell Marsh, which is owned and managed by the RSPB, is an internationally important site, with bitterns, marsh harriers and bearded tits breeding in the reedbeds; avocets and black-headed gulls breeding on the fresh marsh; and large populations of wading birds and wildfowl through the winter and migration periods.
The Marsh is under pressure from coastal processes so in 2009 work began to improve the area’s flood defences.
The sea defences were realigned over part of the reserve and the sea bank behind the brackish marsh – Parrinder Bank – was reinforced to protect the freshwater habitats.
The seawall to the west of the freshwater habitats was also strengthened and the old brackish marsh seawall was breached to allow it to revert to salt marsh.
