The Great Orme Wildlife

Summary (optional)
start content

The wildlife of the Great Orme is very rich. The sea cliffs, limestone grassland, heathland and woodland support an enormous variety of wildflowers and invertebrates, many of which are rare and unusual. The wide range of flowers on the Great Orme provide food for many different species of butterfly, and during the summer months clouds of butterflies can often be seen (a rare sight in many parts of the country).

Also throughout the summer months the spectacular cliffs are host to breeding colonies of seabirds such as guillemots, kittiwakes and razorbills. Ravens and little owls also inhabit the more remote cliff areas.

For more detailed information on the wildlife of the Great Orme please look at the Management Plan.
