Steyning and SusSAR

Old Rifle Range at Steyning
On Thursday morning I visited Steyning again to hut for the elusive Brown Hairstreak. Once again I met other enthusiasts on the same mission, The weather was perfect, but no sign of the elusive creature.

During the afternoon I received a call-out from SusSAR for an elderly lady who was missing from South Harting Village: This turned into a 3 day event with Search and Recovery units, Search Dog units and Neighbourhood Watch teams from Southern England turning out. I worked with a Search Dog unit and a Neighbourhood Watch team for the first time, an interesting experience. The lady was thankfully found on Saturday safe and well on a  road by a police patrol car 2 miles from the village.

  1. The Chalkhill Blues came out on Mill Hill after you had left. I had the same number as you at first. Then I sat down and about 35 more appeared almost from nowhere. Still a low total.
