Morups Tånge Info
The sandy heath south of the beautiful lighthouse has been grazed for a long time. Sand sedge (Carex arnenaria) and grasses such as sand ryegrass (Leymus arenarius) and sand marram (Ammophila arenaria) dominate here. The thrift (Armeria maritima) blooms in early summer together with the thyme and ladie's bedstraw (Galium verum). There are also large populations of "Kostertistel", ie sea holly (Eryngium maritimum). The grazed beach meadows, seaweed mounds and the clay bases of the shallow bays provide food in the form of, among other things, insects, snails and mussels to the migratory birds that pass during spring and autumn.
