Rockland marsh

Rockland Broad is an area of open water located just north of the village of Rockland St. Mary, Norfolk. The broad lies within the Broads protected area. It comprises an area of approximately 50 acres (200,000 m2) and is surrounded by marshland and tall reed beds. It is linked to the River Yare by two dykes, the Short Dyke and the Fleet Dyke.

From the village of Rockland St. Mary the broad can be reached via Rockland Staithe, opposite 'The New Inn'. The main navigable channel links the staithe to the Short Dyke. A footpath also leads from the staithe to an RSPB Bird hide which overlooks both the broad and the adjacent Rockland Marshes. There is also a channel on the western side which links to Wheatfen Broad.
This small reserve provides views over Rockland Broad, the River Yare, reedbeds and open grazing marshes, via a wheelchair-friendly path. A hide overlooks the Broad, where in spring and summer, kingfishers and great crested grebes can be seen. Along the path, wetland warblers can be seen and barn owls (pictured) often hunt.
