The Wildlife of Kippford
Kippford Community Nature Reserve, known affectionately by the locals as The Kipp, aims to increase the abundance of local wildlife in the area. Already it has become a place for many bird species to gather. Tits, larks, woodpeckers, and kestrels were among the first to settle in the nature reserve.
Badgers, red deer, red squirrels, wild swans, otters, goats, shrews, voles, mountain hares, and leatherback turtles are just a few of the many animals that inhabit the region around The Kipp and Coastal Kippford.
