Reach Pocket Park forms part of the Cambridgeshire County Council’s County Farms estate. Willows planted by the pond host a variety of insects, and provide an important food resource and shelter for birds and mammals. Kestrels may be seen hovering overhead, while grey herons posed motionless in the reeds wait for fish and toads to come within reach. The damp grassland is of particular interest and is subject to a traditional management regime without fertiliser, which encourages the spread of grasses and wildflowers. The site is lightly grazed by sheep to maintain the grassland habitat, and to prevent the growth of new scrub.
