Wildlife Overview


On this small headland you will find places that are windy, sheltered, wet, dry, muddy, sandy, stony, sunny, shady, flat, steep and salty. These diverse habitats create homes for over 500 plant species, 300 types of birds, a superb variety of insects, reptiles and small mammals.

Because of the delicate balance of our habitats we use animal grazing to manage the grassy areas and keep down unwanted scrub growth.
