Nature & Wildlife

Fermanagh's Lakelands offer a natural haven for wildlife and there is ample opportunity to experience the natural diversity of the region by boat, by bike or on foot.

Explore the mountains, limestone pavements and cliffs, wooded river valleys, sandstone scarps as well as unspoilt hay meadows, hundreds of small lakes and not forgetting the large expanses of Upper and Lower Lough Erne with their numerous bays and islands.

The abundance of wildlife can be attributed to its geology and the relatively undisturbed landscape that Fermanagh is famous for. Orchid-covered roadside verges, hedges white with the blossoms of hawthorn, damp fields pink with ragged robin are just a few of the things you may see.

Skylarks and cuckoos call in the uplands while coots and great-crested grebes build their nests in reedy bays. In winter, Fermanagh has other attractions with hundreds of migrant wild-fowl flying in to escape the Arctic cold. Whooper swans, wigeon, and teal occur in large numbers.
