Hatch Mere
Hatch Mere is a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and comprises a eutrophic lake with an associated area of fen carr and dry woodland, which is part of the Meres and Mosses Ramsar sites of the north and northwest midlands. These sites make up a series of internationally important areas of open water and peatland. The reserve covers an area of 12.6ha (31.1 acres).
Hatch Mere is an important breeding ground for many bird species, which include the great crested grebe, the Reed bunting and the Willow warbler. At least 13 species of dragonfly and damselfly have been recorded, including the nationally notable hairy dragonfly and the variable damselfly. The site also supports a small population of common lizards.
