Our walk through the Sussex Wildlife Trust's Southerham reserve today wasn't as sunny - or as warm as I had hoped for and spring butterflies were hard to find (although we did see an orange-tip and a dingy skipper). Luckily a fine display of burnt orchids more than made up
A badger has been visiting the compost bins at Woods Mill nature reserve.
There are no meat products in the compost bin, just the usual uncooked vegetable matter, fruit and shredded paper etc, but also lots of juicy worms!
3 bird highlights: the last few Common Tern chicks still being fed at their nesting islands near the Denny Hide, Swifts feeding over larger pits in the morning & probably hundreds of young Yellow Wagtails on the shingle & around the pits that have short vegetation. pic.twitter.com/Cv5amx9o9y
