Outer Heath SNCI (Site of Nature Conservation Interest) supports a wide range of plants, birds, insects and mammals and is a wonderful place to come wildlife spotting. Warmwell Heath in the far distance is a Special Protected Area because of the wildlife it supports. Many birds can be seen here including several of conservation concern such as Song thrush, Tree pipit, Green woodpecker, Linnet and Nightjar. Look out for the Sika Deer as they graze quietly on the heath, small herds often rest in the shelter of The Hollow.
