Site of Special Scientific Interest
Patch is situated within a much larger site of special scientific interest, which is monitored by the Countryside Council for Wales (CCW). The CCW are advisors for the government on sustaining the natural beauty and wildlife throughout Wales.
Patch is one of several Welsh dune systems that are now recognised to be of International importance for their geological, geomorphological and biological features.
There are many types of sand dunes that support different types of plant life, fungi, sand lizards and invertibrates.
One of the plants that can be found at Patch is "Lady's bed straw" which is a small foul smelling plant when crushed, and was mixed in with straw that was used to made up matresses, as it repelled fleas. Ensuring a good night's sleep!
Patch caravan park is nestled within sand dunes and overlooks Cardigan Bay and is of interest because of the flora that can be found in the dune system, the cliffs a quarter mile up the coast and its foreshore support a wide range of marine and coastal wildlife.
Cardigan Bay itself is known to be populated with Bottlenosed Dolphins and Atlantic Grey seals. The cliffs provide nesting sites for Choughs and the lesser black backed gull, amoung the crevices of the cliffs can be found a rare sub-species of Rock sea- Lavender.
There are many different web sites for information on Atlantic Grey seals and Dolphins that can be seen in Cardigan Bay, and the BBC is just one of them. For more information on Dolphins click here
