Our guest speaker is Senior Learning & Engagement Officer Michael Blencowe

Michael Blencowe has been working for Sussex Wildlife Trust since 2011 and many of you may have attended one of his walks
or talks, or read his monthly wildlife articles which appear in a number of Sussex publications. Michael’s talk will celebrate the wildlife of our county. He’ll be looking back over this year’s wildlife highlights, from giant sea creatures lurking in the depths of the sea off Sussex, to beautiful blue butterflies on the South Downs. We’ll encounter mimicking moths, vengeful voles, elusive otters and a shiny new shieldbug. Oh, and there will be a rampaging Black Bear somewhere in there too. 

 If you have seen one of Michael’s presentations before you’ll know it will be both entertaining and informative as well as a great opportunity to learn more about Sussex wildlife and the work of the Trust.
