A small but important wildlife haven on the Ards Peninsula.

This small, cut-over bog contains a mixture of trees such as birch, willow and gorse scrub, as well as open boggy and grassland areas.

Nestled in an otherwise intensively managed landscape, the undisturbed position of Inishargy attracts a range of birds of conservation concern including linnet, reed bunting and meadow pipit. Buzzards can also be seen or heard circling overhead, and sparrowhawks and kestrel regularly hunt here.
