Wildlife at the reserve
The site’s drainage ditches have become home to many water voles and the elusive otter may also be seen. Keep an eye out for their footprints in the mud or distinctive droppings – known as “spraints”. Most of the site, particularly in and around the sewage treatment works, is also home to the brown hare.
Tall grass in the saltmarsh has grown over the years and created suitable habitats for various invertebrates, including ground beetles, specialist spiders, butterflies and grasshoppers.
On windy days, butterfly species usually found on the nearby hills canbe seen in the more sheltered partsof the site.

Birdwatching
You can see a range of wildfowl on the nature reserve from the two bird hides situated at the north side of the lagoon and the south side which has wheelchair access.

Protecting the environment
Our sewage treatment works to the south west of the nature reserve treats sewage to a high standard so it can be safely released back into the environment.
The sewage works was built in 1999 and serves up to 250,000 people living in, or visiting, the popular seaside town of Weston-super-Mare.
In recent years millions of pounds have been invested in improving the treatment facilities and ensuring the site can cope with an increasing population without harming the
environment.
These improvements mean the works can now treat up to 86 million litres of sewage a day in times of extreme weather, as well as store up to 21 million litres of stormwater.
Our dedicated environment team are continuously looking at ways to enhance the environment and encourage biodiversity in and around our sites.

Education
A purpose built education centre is situated at the sewage treatment works, where our education adviser hosts classroom talks and tours of the sewage works for both primary
and secondary schoolchildren as well as college students.
This free education service covers various topics in the curriculum such as the water cycle, sewage sludge digestion, climate change and the environment.
