Much willow and scrub clearance has taken place in the south-east bay of the reservoir to create these earth bunds and pools. The main aim of this work is to enhance, correct and rejoin fragmented reed bed habitat areas in the bay.
Belvide Reservoir :: SJ8610

Belvide is a 180-acre canal feeder reservoir constructed in 1834 to supply the nearby Shropshire Union Canal. Birdwatching interest in the site did not awaken until the 1920s, but it is now regarded as one of the top sites in the Midlands. Owned by the Canal & Rivers Trust (formerly British Waterways), the site is leased to and managed by the West Midland Bird Club. It is scheduled as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) under the stewardship of Natural England. Integral to the reserve is a 3 ha tract of broad-leaved woodland which is owned by the Club.
