The Eastbourne Group visited Woods Mill on 18 June 2015 and on a guided walk lead by Mike Russell in glorious sunshine were well rewarded with some great sightings of 21 bird species, 7 of Dragonflies/Damselflies, 9 species of Butterflies and 2 of Moths plus numerous plant species. The highlights included the purring of a Turtle Dove, a Cuckoo, a Little Grebe with chicks, both the Banded and Beautiful Demoiselles (see photo of the latter), an Emperor Dragonfly ovipositing, the first Large Skipper of the year for many of us and a large number of very small “froglets” crossing a path in front of us.
We feel that the current #A27Arundel Consultation is another example of a major infrastructure project failing to acknowledge the importance of impacts on the environment & the legislation & policies that we have to try to make things better for nature. https://t.co/FlEKnYSY7x pic.twitter.com/i87ZU5sxgQ— Sussex Wildlife Trust 🍄 (@SussexWildlife) February 28, 2020

Open up wildlife highways: Cut out little doorways at the base of fences so that #Hedgehogs, Frogs and Toads can get from one garden to the next. Make sure to ask your neighbours’ permission 🦔💚🐸https://t.co/xXu56weuE6 pic.twitter.com/ROChUj5gp9— Sussex Wildlife Trust 🍄 (@SussexWildlife) February 28, 2020
