Guided tour of the Woods Mill nature reserve led by Michael Blencowe, a senior learning and engagement officer.
Join the Kent, Surrey and Sussex branch for a talk and walk around Woods Mill nature reserve, near Henfield in West Sussex. This 47 acre site is the headquarters of Sussex Wildlife Trust and it contains streams, ponds, a lake, ancient woodland and unimproved meadows with their wild hedgerows, all maintained to attract and sustain an impressive number of species including mammals, insects, amphibians and birds.
Amongst the wide range of bird species reported are water rail, chiffchaff, kingfishers and Cetti's and reed warblers, while in the streams water shrews can sometimes be seen. On the lake may be dragonflies of all sorts including brown and southern hawkers and scarce chasers, while amongst the butterflies meadow browns, marbled whites, brown hairstreak, purple emperors and gatekeepers may be observed.
The day will be an exceptional chance to enjoy the best of Sussex wildlife.
