Stortons Pits

Stortons Pits: The eastern lake was planted with common reed and provides a valuable habitat for wetland birds such as reed and sedge warblers and reed bunting. Wading birds such as snipe feed in the exposed wet mud areas. The rare water rail is a regular winter visitor. In winter, dusk is an excellent time to watch thousands of starlings swooping into the reedbed to roost.


Duston Mill Meadow is a small fragment of wet riverside meadow that is important for butterflies.
