About the reserve
Isle Namanfin in Co Fermanagh is one of only a few places in Northern Ireland where the rare ivy broomrape is found – a plant that parasitizes the roots of ivy.
The buckthorn trees found on the island are home to a rare leaf-mining micro-moth: the buckthorn pygmy.
The scarce garden warbler, a summer visitor to Northern Ireland, has bred here in the past. Other interesting birds found here include song thrush, bullfinch and reed bunting.
The only mammal species recorded here is the otter.
We make regular visits to Isle Namanfin to monitor the rare ivy broomrape, and other interesting species found on the island.
Due to the small and isolated nature of the site, there is no public access.
