The site is split into three phases with phases 1st and 2nd being the current RSPB reserve whilst the 3rd phase is currently a working quarry which is expected to close at the end of 2020. The site is home to good populations of Cetti's Warbler and Bearded Tit. Recent rarities to the area have included Pallid Harrier and Horned Lark and Great Egret have been frequently recorded.
