Over 150 species of bird have been sighted at Siddick Ponds Nature reserve, a designated Site of Special Scientific Interest. Formed when the building of the railway sidings flooded the marshy land, it is a favourite haunt of local birdwatchers. When starlings roost in autumn, the likes of peregrines, merlins and sparrowhawks are attracted to the area, with the prospect of easy pickings.
