The 'Beast from the East' arrived this week, bringing snow and freezing temperatures to Sussex. Here is a taste of the wintery conditions on our nature reserves.

Deep snow was lying at the Stanmer Park garden in Brighton.
But our work still goes on, here is the Gatwick Greenspace team working on some dormouse boxes.
If you have taken any snowy photos on our nature reserves, we'd love to see them. Please post them on our Facebook Page.
