Dawlish Warren NNR

Location:Devon

Habitats:Coastal

Livestock:Dartmoor ponies

In brief:Dawlish Warren NNR is jointly owned and managed by Teignbridge District Council and the Devon Wildlife Trust. The NNR contains the full range of coastal habitats, from mudflats to sand dunes. Up to 8,000 wading birds rest at Warren Point at high tide and the site supports over 600 plant species, including the rare Warren crocus which is unique to the area. New species are still being found, notably the diminutive petalwort, an internationally rare liverwort. In light of its importance the area has been declared a Special Area of Conservation (SAC) and a Ramsar site as part of the Exe Estuary. The site is grazed with Dartmoor ponies.
