Classic wildlife sites: The Torbay limestones

In spite of centuries of changing agriculture, the south-east Devon coast offers the naturalist a wide array of exceptional wildlife sites. At the southernmost end, the high schistose headlands of Prawle and Start Points ultimately give way to the shingle and lagoons at Slapton. But for me, unquestionably the single most exciting group of botanical sites along this coast lies around Torbay.
