Today the habitats at Netherfield are constantly changing. Not least on the RSPB reserve where gravel pits were dug in the scrubby grasslands. Some of these have been formed into large lagoons, one deep water the other shallow. The shallow lagoon is at present almost full of Flyash, with areas of water and reedbed at one end. The fact that the flyash lagoon is an internationally important site for Golden Plover has saved it from being flattened. But one thing is for certain more changes are coming to the area.
Waders, Yellow-legged Herring Gulls, Skylark, Artic Tern, Teal, Shoveler and Pintail can all be expected at some time during the year. While recently the lagoons have played host to Slavonian Grebe, Mediterranean and Little Gulls. Ruddy Duck, Little Owl and Green Woodpecker are present but harder to find.
