Reed bed is a flooded area dominated by some tall non-woody plants such as reeds, bulrushes and Phragmites. Similar to a marsh but with tall vegetation and thus difficult to walk through.

How to Map?

Draw the shape of the area, then tag with natural=wetland and wetland=reedbed.

This could be included as an inner or outer part of a multipolygon relation if intermixed with firm land or open water areas.
