Wildlife to watch for

Roe and fallow deer are the largest wild animals you are likely to see locally, with the nationally declining water vole being one of the most noteworthy. The diverse environment of the Peninsula supports a wide range of species.

The Wildlife Map

The Peninsula adjoins three important coastal nature reserves: Chichester Harbour to the west, Pagham Harbour to the east and Medmerry to the South. They are all connected to each other by ditches, salt marshes, mud flats and vegetation, which form a network of valuable habitats for wildlife.
