Sand Lizard

A photo of a male and female Sand Lizard

The fantastic network of habitats - including sand dunes, wildflower meadow, copses, saltmarsh, reed beds, and ponds – ensure plant life flourishes. This in turn, provides foraging and shelter for invertebrates, reptiles and birds. Look out for the day flying Jersey tiger-moth, colourful dragonflies such as the Ruddy Darter, and the rare, internationally protected Sand Lizards who roam the dunes. The saltmarsh and mudflats are a particularly valuable refuge for thousands of migratory and resident waterbirds.
