Alan's Pool Intro

Alan's Pool is a small body of water situated very close to the south-east corner of Castle Lake at NZ333305.

Disturbance can be a problem here as footpaths pass close to the western and northern edge of the pool, but with care birds can be observed without them being wary.
The wet grassland is particularly favoured by waders and many of the species that frequent Castle Lake also visit Alan's Pool. The more common wildfowl species are also regular.
