(6) Ballyshonock Reservoir, S453099.

A delightful reservoir, which is divided into two by the road, can be walked around with caution once the water levels have receded. Orange foxtail is usually abundant on the south shore of the smaller half of the reservoir. Shoreweed is very come on the exposed mud as can be Sun Spurge, Water-pepper and Redshank. There are several large patches of Unbranched Bur-reed around the shore, left exposed in dry summers. Creeping Willow is an opponent of the scrub on the north side of the larger half of the reservoir. Large stands of Six-stamened Waterwort can be found in the northeast corner on the exposed mud if the water level has dropped sufficiently. Floating Club-rush and Water-plantain grow by a small stream flowing into the reservoir.
