In Portsmouth, RI at Common Fence Point there is a large marsh and recently restored pond (2007). The Phragmites had taken over the entire area until the pond’s restoration in 2007. I am not sure of the current environmental health of this marsh but it is interesting to photograph because of the vast growth of these Phragmites which can grow upwards of 8 feet and the abundant wildlife and site features. There is a well maintained path through the tall reeds that leads to an abandoned rail line and bridge over the ponds inlet.
