With hundreds of miles of coast and nearby islands like Lundy and the Isles of Scilly, it is also an important place for seabirds.
Whatever the time of year, there is a bird spectacle to enjoy. Whether it is hundreds of avocets wintering close to our Exe Estuary reserves, flocks of ducks and wading birds at West Sedgemoor, or the summertime heathland delights of Dartford warblers and nocturnal nightjars at reserves like Arne and Aylesbeare, the south-west rarely fails to impress!
