Walney Island Conservation Areas:

Sand Dunes:

South Walney and Piel Flats Channel SSSI

The sand dunes that have developed behind the shingle ridge at South End Haws (in particular) support a wide diversity of plant life, with areas between the foredunes and main dune ridge susceptible to flooding on the highest tides. The sand dune and shingle habitats combined support the largest gull colony in north west England.

The Duddon Estuary SSSI

The sand dunes that have developed at the northern end of Walney Island also support a wide diversity of plant life and are home to one of the largest colonies of Natterjack Toads in the UK.
