Butterfly Conservation in Sussex

We attended an excellent BC social event at Westmeston Parish Hall. Dr Dan Danahar, Sussex Branch Biodiversity Officer, gave a presentation on 'Butterflies and Biodiversity'. This was followed by Michael Blencowe giving us a slideshow tour of the recently acquired Rowland Wood Reserve and a summary of the dozens of events Sussex BC branch has planned for members this year. After tea and cake we won a DVD in the raffle: “The Best of Butterfly Days” covering 58 species. David Bradford finished the afternoon with a great slide show of Sussex creatures and landscapes. I especially liked his adder shots. He admires the work of Eric & James Ravilious and Paul & John Nash and it showed in his wonderful landscapes photos. He is another photographer that mourns the loss of kodachrome, K64 being my favourite film for underwater photography in the 80’s
