About the reserve
Once the site of a small pond, this reserve is now composed of floating mats of vegetation and curragh. Many birds have been recorded on the site including chiffchaff, willow warbler, blackcap, teal, wigeon, shoveler, coot, moorhen, water rail, grey wagtail, sparrow hawk and woodcock. Buzzards are frequently seen flying over.
Management: Recent work to remove willow has resulted in some permanent standing water.
