S is for SSSI

Such is the conservation value of the river Camel and itstributaries, that an area between Egloshayle and Blisland has been designated a site of special scientific interest by Natural England.  This is the largest of the five SSSIs in the area, which democratically recognise not only animal species like the otter and wading birds, but also the fantastic and ugly Bullhead fish.  Under the guidance of conservation organisation, the riparian owners manage the land in everyone’s best interests, which keeps the fauna and flora happy too.
