About the reserve

The River Erewash flows through the reserve and at its downstream end forms a delta before flowing under Stoney Lane and the A610 Eastwood bypass. There are resident species such as water rail, reed bunting and lapwing. Rarities in recent years include red-footed falcom and spoonbill and almost anything can turn up. Various butterflies occur, including common blue and meadow brown.
