Grazing by cattle is a key part of the management and at certain times of the year you will see British whites in this area, a breed well suited to conservation grazing.
Many of the beautiful flowers associated with chalk grassland such as common centaury, squinancywort, clustered bellflower, lady’s bedstraw and kidney vetch are present from May to August, as are butterflies such as the chalkhill blue, silver-spotted skipper and dingy skipper. The song of stonechat, skylark and whitethroat fills the air in spring and summer.
In the nesting season you can see (and hear) the colony of kittiwakes and along the cliffs see fulmars and peregrine falcon.
Green-winged orchids can be found within the golf course by the fairways in May.
