Yorkshire wetlands designated as SSSI

dddA cluster of wetlands along the Dearne Valley in South Yorkshire has been designated as a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) by Natural England.

The area, which covers a swathe of RSPB-managed land, such as the famous Old Moor reserve, has been awarded SSSI status for its nationally important birds including the rapidly declining Willow Tit, as well as wetland species such as Eurasian Bittern, Northern Lapwing, Avocet and Garganey.

The SSSI links different pockets of valuable habitat in the Dearne Valley area between Pool Ings near Royston in the north, a large area between Worsbrough in the west, and Adwick Washlands in the east.
