The reserve forms part of the Seaford Head to Beachy Head Site of Special Scientific Interest. The geology here is unusual with a layer of sand overlying chalk cliffs. Within the reserve communities of both chalk and acid-loving plants grow in harmony, along with rare butterflies, bees and other insects.
