A pond surrounded by grassland, used by over-wintering migrant birds which are attracted by the pond's proximity to the coast. Breeding species include little grebe, pochard, greylag goose and sedge warbler. In winter, widgeon, godeneye and tufted duck are joined by greenshank, green sandpiper, amongst other rarities.
The site consists of a large subsidence pond surrounded by grassland and some mature and semi-mature areas of woodland and scrub. The pond margins to the west and north are well vegetated with reed mace dominating and the surrounding grassland supports populations of common spotted and northern marsh orchids. There are two hides on site, including a public hide which is open at all times.
