So much more than its spikey exterior exudes, heathland supports a huge variety of remarkable wildlife. Declared a National Nature Reserve (NNR) in 2020, the Pebblebed Heaths consist of highly protected habitats, internationally recognised for a wealth of key species. No matter what the time of year, there is always something to see.
