    This site is designated as an SSSI or is part of a larger SSSI. Here are the details:

    SSSI Name Poole Harbour
    Primary Photo

    Poole Harbour is one of the largest natural harbours in the world, a very high proportion of its area comprising intertidal marshes and mudflats. These, together with the permanent channels, support large numbers of wintering wildfowl and waders, for which Poole Harbour has national and international significance. Fringing habitats of heathland, grassland and the islands provide additional interests, in turn supporting further scarce and restricted flora and fauna. Several rare marine invertebrates also occur within the harbour.

    Interest Biological
    Status Now Featured on NoD
    My Notes Poole Harbour is internationally important for birds and for wildlife as a whole so no wonder it is an SSSI.
