Much of the management work carried out in the nature reserve is aimed at encouraging ducks to breed, and small numbers of tufted duck ("Aythya fuligula"), common pochard ("Aythya ferina"), common shelduck ("Tadorna tadorna") and gadwall raise broods most years. Recent breeding successes also include water rail ("Rallus aquaticus") and Cetti's warbler ("Cettia cetti").
The neighbouring Knockbody Wood is inhabited by wild pheasant and is a popular attraction for local pheasant hunters.

Built on a marsh, the reservoir still retains a high degree of biological interest with a gradual transition from emergent vegetation with islets and peat to open water.

Some of the species include, gadwall ("Anas strepera"), goldeneye ("Bucephala clangula"), goosander ("Mergus merganser"), mallard ("Anas platyrhynchos"), common pochard ("Aythya ferina"), shoveler ("Anas clypeata"), teal ("Anas crecca") and tufted duck ("Aythya fuligula").

Southlake Moor is another SSSI, which forms part of an extensive grazing marsh and ditch system. When conditions in the River Parrett are suitable, the moor can be deliberately flooded in winter by opening a sluice in the river's floodbank. Some 96 species of aquatic and bankside vascular plant species have been recorded on Southlake Moor, including the greater water-parsnip ("Sium latifolium"). When the moor is flooded it can be occupied by large numbers of wildfowl; up to 22,000 wigeon ("Anas penelope"), 250 Bewick's swan ("Cygnus bewickii") and good numbers of pochard ("Aythya ferina"), teal ("Anas crecca") and tufted duck ("Aythya fuligula"). Signs of European otters ("Lutra lutra") are regularly seen on the muddy banks of the River Parrett. The ditches on the east side of the site are populated by palmate newts ("Triturus helveticus").
Southlake Moor forms part of the extensive grazing marsh and ditch system of Somerset Levels and Moors. Southlake Moor is unusual in that, when conditions in the River Parrett are suitable, it may be deliberately flooded in winter by means of a sluice in the river floodbank. Some 96 species of aquatic and bankside vascular plant species have been recorded from Southlake Moor, of particular interest is the greater water-parsnip ("Sium latifolium"). When the moor is flooded, large numbers of wildfowl may be present; with up to 22,000 wigeon ("Anas penelope"), 250 Bewick's swan ("Cygnus bewickii") and good numbers of pochard ("Aythya ferina"), teal ("Anas crecca") and tufted duck ("Aythya fuligula"). Regular signs of the otter ("Lutra lutra") are to be seen on the muddy banks of the River Parrett.
