Philip Jackson’s garden and butterfly videos

Gabrielli's Apprentice
On Saturday we visited a Murray Downland Trust fundraiser held in the sculptor Philip Jackson’s garden at Cocking. We enjoyed his statues set around the garden and tea and home-baked cakes. Afterwards I showed Sue Heyshott Escarpment where I do winter conservation work with MDT and Sussex BC members.
On Sunday morning I visited Rewell Wood where I found a green Phyllobius weevil and a male Dark Bush-cricket nymph. In the afternoon I made some videos of butterflies, dragonflies for Arundel WWT:
