The site is one of the smaller 'Hadrian's Wall loughs' and is distictly different from the others.

The water levels fluctuate drastically, often contrary to what is expected. At times the lake is large and particularly suitable for waterfowl; at other times there may be large muddy margins.

Flocks of geese gather on and around the site which has particular value for Greenland white-fronted geese. An increasing number of Canada geese also use the lough causing some management issues on and around the site. The site is about 5km north of Hayden Bridge and is best viewed from the Stanegate, where small lay-bys give good views across and down the lake.
