This former trout farm now provides valuable habitat for the threatened water vole, one of the few places in Southern Gloucestershire where it still exists. Otters pass through the reserve using the Ozleworth Brook. Birds such as dipper, kingfisher and heron are also regularly seen here.
Nind nature reserve is a hidden minature wetland. There is a short 'there and back again' walk along a public footpath, but this reserve is best experienced by stopping, looking and listening.
The stars are the water voles, regularly seen and heard in the water channels, but there are also wetland plants, otter, dragonfly, amphibians and a number of watery birds like dipper, kingfisher, heron, water rail and the occasional rarity.
