Glen Moss has areas of marshland, woodland and wet heath with open water and sheltered, shallow pools. It is a natural haven for songbirds, waterfowl, amphibians and insects, particularly dragonflies and damselflies. Rare plants include the coral root orchid.
Please note that work is being undertaken on the sluice during September 2022. Avoid this part of the reserve, at this time, and take notice of the contractor’s safety measures.
