Springwatch – Butterflies and all things natural

Bea and I attended the Springwatch Festival at Stanmer Park, Brighton. We assisted at the Butterfly Conservation stand, handing out leaflets to passing families and inviting them to join the butterfly walks at noon and 2:30. After my shift ended at 1:30 we had wraps at the Claras Caribbean foodstall, excellent. The birds of prey demonstration was a big crowd puller, a baby owl brought many ahhs. The number of Natural History stands was amazing. The weather was perfect, light breeze dry and sunny until near the end. A great family event. Will explore Stanmer Park further, it is huge and easy to access being next to the A27. On the way home we called in at Mill Hill near Shoreham hoping to see butterflies. The weather changed though, cloudy, just one painted lady and a moth. Great views though.
