Cleaver Heath is a small, 7 acre island of lowland heath fringed with birch and oak woodland on the edge of Heswall. A wide range of birds has been recorded using the Heath, there is a small population of common lizards, and the plant community includes typical heathland grasses as well as heather, bilberry and both the European and rarer western gorse. Badgers, foxes and hares have also been recorded. The Reserve, a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), has spectacular views across the Dee estuary to the Welsh hills and down to the Point of Ayr.
