Is a wildlife wetland reserve

providing the local community and visitors a gateway into the wider Wigan Flashes Nature reserve.

Visitors will be impressed by the tranquil beauty of the lake which plays home to a variety of birdlife including goosanders, mute swans, grey heron and kingfisher.

The locally famous bird feeding station, which draws in ornithologists from the local area and further afield, offers the perfect opportunity to enjoy closer views of local wildlife including the nationally rare Willow Tit (one of five RSPB red listed birds in the area), plus the Jay, Chaffinch and Great Spotted Woodpecker.

The reserve was once famous for its three large spoil heaps known locally as the ‘Three Sisters’ and from this the site officially became the Three Sisters Recreation Area. Natural regeneration following past mining has re-colonised parts of the reserve and now provides an interesting and diverse mix of grassland species.
