Hastings country park

Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve is a unique 345ha area of maritime cliff and various grasslands. The cliffs at Hastings Country Park constitute the largest area of the High Weald ridge that meets the sea.
The site is of significant importance both nationally and internationally for its biodiversity and geology and has therefore been granted both Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) and candidate Special Area of Conservation (cSAC) status.
A few dozen pairs of fulmar Fulmarus glacialis and herring gull Larus argentatus nest on cliff ledges as well as smaller numbers of lesser black-backed gull Larus fuscus. Peregrines Falco peregrinus and kestrels Falco tinnunculus breed as well as up to five pairs of black redstart Phoenicurus ochruros (pictured). Great cormorants Phalacrocorax carbo once bred regularly but now only breed in small numbers occasionally.
