North Bull Island Nature Reserves
Partly State-owned and partly privately owned
These two reserves comprise 1,436 hectares, of which 1,318 are State-owned and 118 are privately owned.
Animals and plants of interest
The island is covered with dune grassland. An extensive salt marsh lies to the northwest and at extreme low tides there are extensive mud flats between the island and the mainland. The reserves are of international scientific importance for Brent Geese and also on botanical, ornithological, zoological and geomorphological grounds.
