Discover The Lizard Natural Nature Reserve, Cornwall

1660 hectares of coastal grassland and inland heaths constitute the Lizard National Nature Reserve, located not far from Landewednack on the southern tip of Britain. The greater Lizard peninsula (which covers 15 000 hectares) is home to over 250 species of wildlife and an impressive range of wild flora, which thrive in Cornwall's relatively temperate climate. Listen out for the chough, a red-billed bird with a unique call. Geologists may take interest in the layers of rock formations, sourced from the earth's core 400 million years ago.
