|Condition assessment comment:
||The open water and wet woodland have been assessed favourable borderline with concern over shading in both habitats - need to keep up with coppice management to try and increase amount of open space. The aquatic plant interests in the ponds have not changed significantly since 2005. The main invertebrate interest are 1) the wet beetle assemblage which concentrate around the transitionory zones between the open water and wet woodland which has been maintained. 2) The breeding dragonfly assemblage which has still not been fully assessed as only the larvaes have been surveyed. 3) the white clawed crayfish population is thriving with several hundreds specimens recorded in the brook between the ponds.
