The site is split into three phases- Phases 1 and 2 are the current RSPB reserve whilst Phase 3 is slowly being transformed into reedbed. The site is home to good populations of Cetti's Warbler and Bearded Tit. Great Egret are regular, whilst in the summer gull species such as Yellow-legged Gull and Caspian Gull are possible. The site has attracted a number of rarities, including Penduline Tit, Ring-necked Duck, Shore Lark and Great Reed Warbler.



The reserve is accessed by road from the A1133 down Cottage lane just to the north of the railway crossing near Langford Village. There is small car park at the end of the road. Dogs are allowed on the public footpaths that run around the edges of the site but not within the actual reserve itself. There are no toilets on site. Phase 3 of the site is partly viewable from National Cycle route 64, which runs past the entrance to the reserve.
