Fens Pools SSSI
Fens Pools comprises three canal feeder reservoirs and associated smaller pools, which lie to the north of the Dudley Canal, and include a wide range of habitats from open water through swamp, fen to grassland and scrub.
It is the best amphibian site known in the West Midlands, supporting common frog, common toad and exceptional numbers of both smooth and great crested newts. The great crested newt population is one of the largest so far recorded in Britain.
At least ten species of dragonfly have also been recorded from the site along with over 20 species of butterfly.
