Campsfield Marsh

We had a great new find for a natural history walk on the Solway coast: Campsfield Marsh is an RSPB reserve near Bowness on Solway and is a haven of wild flowers, fresh water pools and plenty of bird life.  They have Marsh Harriers (Circus aeruginosus) and a fantastic array of dragonflies swooping over the reeds and ponds hunting for prey.  There is a small centre with hot drinks available when open.  It is staffed on weekends.  The photo shows bull rushes and purple loosestrife in one of the pools.
