Scolt Head Island NNR

The reserve's primary habitats are sand dune, saltmarsh, intertidal sand and mud flats, and open shingle. The saltmarshes are considered to be the finest in the UK and are the best documented and researched in the world.
The reserve is difficult to access and this, combined with a management policy of non-intervention, has helped to establish the site as a first-rate research resource for the study of coastal processes.
The island supports nationally and internationally important numbers of breeding terns (sandwich, roseate, Arctic and little) and wintering wildfowl, and waders such as shelduck, wigeon, teal and curlew.
The plant communities of the dunes and saltmarshes are classic examples of their type. Vegetated shingle 'lows' contain plant species of international importance such as matted sea lavender and sea heath.
