Conors Island is grazed by sheep and cows and is covered in grass. The whole island is low lying. Some of the grass is species rich machair, like that found in the Hebrides. Conors Island is part of the Streedagh Point Dunes Special Area of Conservation (SAC). I could see wild pansies, birds foot trefoil, yarrow and bedstraw in flower when I visited in early September. As I left Black Rock to head on to Conors Island a group of horse riders galloped up Streedagh Strand and disappeared onto Conors Island.
