South Marshes

2019 Status:

Substrate: Moist sediment with tall Spartina grasses (alterniflora and patens) along the southern tip; dense Phragmites, and deeply layered/seasoned wrack mats more inland.

Wildlife: American Oystercatchers (nesting), Waders, migratory shorebirds, Passerines.

Status: Deep and seasoned wrack mats were an attractive nesting alternative for one American Oystercatcher pair, as 1 egg was found laid there, which was later predated by an avian species. The Phragmite stand continues to encroach into the center of the marsh area.
