About the reserve
Penny Pasture Common is a species-poor neutral grassland and marsh with scattered hawthorn bushes and a large central pond. The site has a poor flora with much of the interest concentrated on the pond and its margins. Snipe have bred in the past but now are more frequent as a winter visitor. Migrant birds such as grasshopper and sedge warblers have bred in recent years.
