Back in early May I mentioned that the bridge leading out to Kent's Island was closed. Now, there's newly built bridge off Hay Street in Newbury provides access Kent’s Island Creek Salt Marsh.
This site is an approximately 47 acre salt marsh near the tributaries to the Little and Parker Rivers. The new bridge is now complete with access to Kent’s Island. The wider culvert improves tidal flushing of the upper marsh which will mean more shorebirds, sparrows & wrens...
