This unassuming concrete lined lake is actually the reason Southampton Common is a SSSI - due to a population of Great-crested Newts. It is drained every winter to kill off any fish such as Sticklebacks that may have made it in to the pond that may prey on the newts. This also makes it good for dragonflies and damselflies as their larvae are also eaten by small fish.
