With the variety of habitats at the lakes it’s not surprising that there is also a vast range of flora and fauna making the lakes their home.
Many of the species are locally and/or nationally rare and occur on the UK Biodiversity Action Plan (BAP) list, it is the Trust's responsibility to maintain populations and safeguard them for the future. So the Trust has written its own BAP which contains Action Plans for particular species and will be added to over the next year.
We have created categories for some of the species types to make it easier for you to find the information you are interested in. The links below will take you through to another page where you will find useful information and factsheets about some of our valuable wildlife.
More factsheets will be added soon, so please visit again to find out more!
