Wildlife at Arundel WWT

Large Yellow Underwing larva, Noctua pronuba
I have paid regular visits to the Arundel Wildfowl and Wetland Trust and been fortunate to see a Kingfisher perching on posts outside the Sand Martin and Scrape hides. A Chinook helicopter descended to a field next to Arundel WWT.
