This and another pool to the east were formed to create habitats that would attract wildlife, particularly birds, at this remote end of the de facto country park. Warwickshire Wildlife Trust and Warwick District Council collaborated to first excavate a scrape then flood it from the River Leam, whose course is among the trees in the background. Established reedbeds (colonised by willow saplings) can be seen in the photo, a slight zoom shot through an opening in a screen. The reserve has a devoted following among the public.
