About the reserve
One of a number of old gravel pits along the Nene Valley, Storton's Pits is important for wetland birds and insects. An old ditch along the northern edge supports some of the rarest insects in the county. Reed beetles can be seen from late spring and water beetles can be seem all year round in the open pools.
