The White Cliffs of Dover

This is our face;our facade to Europe. This is the only part of our country visible on the continent, and what a glorious part of our country it is. The White Cliffs of Dover are made mainly of soft, white chalk, and are prone to coastal erosion more than other cliffs. Contrary to the famous song, bluebirds cannot actually be found over these cliffs, as bluebirds are an American bird species not found in the UK.
