Sussex Half-Day Bird Safari – Steyning Downs Friday, 6th September 2019 9:30 AM - 1:00 PM
Leader: Mike Russell
This walk takes us across the Steyning Downs looking for summer migrants returning from the north on their way to Africa and stopping off to feed up on the Downs before crossing the English Channel to France.
Species we will be looking out for will be whinchats, wheatears, common redstarts and yellow wagtails, but you never know what might turn up!
No previous knowledge or skills required, just enthusiasm!
Meet at the Beggars Bush Car Park which is on the Bostal Road, a minor road that runs from Steyning to the A27 at Sompting. Grid Map Reference TQ 163 079. The car park is shown on the OS Map. The nearest post code is BN15 0AY, but this will still be a little distance from the car park.
