Site description (2000 baseline)
This large site follows the coastline from Falcarragh to Min an Chladaigh in north County Donegal. It encompasses a large area inland, much of which is small, extensively managed farms, and it excludes the estuary at Ballyness Bay.
This site is an important breeding area for Crex crex and is the closest mainland site to Inishbofin (site 013) and, further out to sea, Tory Island (site 012), two islands which together held 20% of the national population of this species in 1996.
