This 14 acre site was originally a large land reserve. Mined heavily between 1920 and 1950, the sand removal left 2 large pits which flooded and became Creekmoor Ponds.
Types of habitat
As well as the 2 major ponds, the area consists of semi-mature woodland, scrub, tough grassland and remnant heathland.
What to see
Common woodland, waterfowl and dragonfly species.
This is also a good site to spot the:
- great crested grebe which breeds here
- colourful but small firecrest that winters here in small numbers
There is limited parking near this nature reserve.
Your dog must be on a short lead during bird breeding: 1 March to 31 July every year, and when livestock is near. Remember to keep your dog under close control and to pick up after it.
