Wildlife after Gravel

Following the extraction of sand and gravel by ARC, this nature reserve has become an important wildlife refuge for all to enjoy.

Its success has been achieved through careful early planning and by sympathetic working, restoration and landscaping techniques.

Look out for waterbirds, including Gadwell, Wigeon, Pintail, Goldeneye, Smew and Coot which in winter can occur in nationally important numbers.

Many types of dragonfly (including the rare Scarce Chaser) and other insects can be seen in summer.

Walk the network of footpaths to discover wildlife for yourself.

The reserve is open every day and entrance is free. Enjoy yourselves and visit again soon.

Here is a road map showing the location of the Reserve.

Keep to footpaths to avoid disturbing wildlife and for your own safety take only pictures and memories - leave only footprints.
