An open water reserve attracting a wide variety of bird species - one of the best places in north Hertfordshire for water voles.
The open water at this reserve attracts moorhen, mallard and in winter, teal. The reedbed is home to reed warblers, as well as water rails. Look for water voles near the reed margins in summer. The wet ground condition encourages tussock sedge, yellow iris and water forget-me-not. In winter, buntings roost among the reeds, snipe feed in the meadow and siskins feed on alder seeds.
