Compartments 33 and 34 support a sizeable population of lizards, slow worms, grass snakes and adders using both the floodbank and the nearby Fritton Forest. Preliminary surveys have revealed a substantial population of the nationally protected adder, one of the largest colonies yet identified in the Broads. The implications of the population have already been considered as part of the design process. Alternative construction methods, compared to the traditional earthworks, are being considered, these alternatives will have less impact on the reptiles habitat and should reduce the need for possible population relocation.
