Lying near the banks of the River Stour, this reserve is special for its mix of open water, fen and wet scrub.
Barely a stone’s throw from its urban neighbours this reserve, lying near the banks of the River Stour, is special for its mix of open water, fen and wet scrub. Reed sweet-grass and common reed often dominate, providing nesting sites for reed bunting, sedge and reed warbler. In autumn swallow and sand martin stop off on their momentous journey back to Africa. Pied wagtail, fieldfare and redwing roost in the willow scrub in winter. Large noctule bat can also be spotted hunting on summer evenings.
