Description

The salt marsh in front of the artifical island of Langlütjen has a very unique vegetation, dominated by reed, which is not typical for a North Sea coastal salt marsh. This is due to the mixture of fresh water from Weser river and salt water from the sea, resulting in half of the typical seawater salt concentration. As it allows reed to grow, you can find typical reed-inhabitants like Marsh Harrier, Bluethroat and Reed Warbler. Additionally, in winter large flocks of Bearded Tit accumulate in the reedbeds.
