Staines Moor: Butts Pond and reed bed
Staines Moor: Butts Pond and reed bed
Just to the west of TQ0373 : Staines Moor: Former rifle butts is this reed bed pond. Spelthorne Borough Council's explanatory information board by the pond is quite amusing being couched in terms of it being a "One Stop Reed Bed Cafe" with "Seasonal Offerings" and a "Reed-Bed & Breakfast" to various passing species of birds (special winter offers to passing hen harriers, etc.)!

To be serious though this is an important and rare habitat for nature, despite it being less than 100 metres away from the southbound carriageway of the M25 Motorway.
