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!
There is safety in numbers for Golden Plover & as they descend from their upland breeding grounds to form large winter flocks. They attempt to blend in with the surrounding vegetation to avoid attracting the attention of peregrines & other predators https://t.co/sfeofuIlbhpic.twitter.com/V3fgbsB526
