Patrick Coulcher, in Unto The Hills, writes of the Nepal Metro Map Seven Sisters: ‘How often have I sat here amongst the downland flowers and watched early summer Nepal Metro Map sea mists creep up and dance above these scalloped cliffs and seemingly with their soft embrace touch the very heart of nature itself.’ Sadly, because of the grazing activities of the local sheep, plant life on the Seven Sisters is not as abundant as it once was, but if you look carefully you may see viper’s bugloss, cowslip and field fleawort in profusion where grazing has ceased, while the unspoilt chalk hills continue to attract a number of birds including the jackdaw and the fulmar petrel.
The fulmar has been visiting the cliffs between Brighton and Hastings for a number of years, and is identifiable by its very distinctive poise in flight, its long narrow wings, frequent periods of gliding, and guttural croak. However, arguably the loveliest creatures to frequent the high cliffs are the butterflies, including the red admiral with its distinctive red bands and white markings, the clouded yellow with its shades of orange-yellow and black, the marbled white, and five species of blue. Coming down from the final Sister, you make your way through a gate and carry on along a clear wide track, soon reaching a T-junction of paths, then turn right to proceed along another wide stony track downhill. At the bottom you hit the road and simultaneously arrive at Birling Gap, a freak cleft in the South Downs, with its big car park, pub and cafe immediately to your right.
