There are three main habitats at Hambrook Marshes – grazed meadows which are often waterlogged or even flooded in winter; permanent water - the river Stour, ditches and a stream; and scrub, mainly on the disused railway embankment, but also scattered trees and a small area of coppiced willow. Most of these habitats are quite small and yet can still attract in a number of species that are not found in the other habitats. A few of the more interesting species are described below, along with tables giving an idea of how common the various species are. There is also a list of all the species found at Hambrook since 2012.
