Leader:  James Duncan

During the summer, Sussex comes alive with flashes of colour from many dazzling insects. We’ll head off around the reserve looking for deadly dragons and iridescent damsels, many of which have remained virtually unchanged for millions of years. Join us for a guided flat walk of approximately 4km to learn more about these prehistoric predators.

Binoculars are recommended, though we will have a few pairs available on the day.

Meet at Rye Harbour village car park (next to the Martello Tower). The nearest postcode is TN31 7TX and the harbour itself is two miles SE of Rye town. 

NOTE: If you’re walking from Rye (the railway station) to Rye Harbour, there is a footpath from Brede Lock (on Harbour Road) along an old railway line that avoids walking the whole length of the road.

Booking essential as places are limited.
