  1. As well as all the amazing bird and marine life, Ramsey has a number of interesting and rare species of plants growing on it. One of these is the sub species of prostrate juniper which grows on a number of sites on the island. It is so rare that there are only 7 of this sub species left in the world and 4 of them grow on Ramsey. It may not look very exciting but this little bush could be an incredible 1000 years old. The Pembrokeshire junipers are though to be an relict of the last Ice Age. Although there are both male and female junipers on Ramsey there is no evidence to suggest they are still fruiting. #juniper
