An oak woodland, covered in bluebells in spring
Scanniclift Copse is mainly an oak woodland adjoining which clings to the steep sides of the Teign Valley. During the spring, the woodland floor is covered in bluebells and wild garlic.
The rare toothwort and nationally scarce bastard balm also occur on the reserve. Many key species are supported here; melanistic fallow deer, harts tongue fern, bird's nest orchid and greater and lesser horseshoe bats
