About the reserve
This reserve is two separate tiny areas - the pond is further south while the Dingle is a small patch of scrub and rough grassland on an island between the old and new courses of the River Nene.
The Dingle's scrub and grassy areas in between provide a sunspot for dragonflies and butterflies. The scrub may provide a useful lying up site for otters, which are now known to be present throughout this stretch of the Nene.
