About the reserve
The site contains two lakes and two overflow ponds which were created by the previous owners to provide nesting habitat and flight ponds for winter migrating wildfowl. They are surrounded by a mix of largely plant broadleaved and coniferous trees and many planted shrubs. The site also includes three open meadows on the west side which are sheep grazed.
Management: At the time of acquisition parts of the site had not been managed for several years. Extensive work has been undertaken to reduce the number of non-native species and this work is ongoing.
