Spring in Sussex - Burpham deer, peacocks, pheasants and grouse
It was a splendid Spring day so after lunch I did the Burpham circular walk via Angmering Park woods where we saw bluebells last year. there was plenty of  wildlife around, including two herds of deer, rabbits, squirrels, a wren, pheasants, two grouse and several larks.
It was a very pleasant walk, uphill, down dale, woodlands and loads of lambs on the downland pastures. I managed my first butterfly shots of the year, a peacock and a male brimstone. 
 There were other people out enjoying the good weather.
Flowers aplenty in the woods, on the lane verges and in Burpham where people nurture a lovely display of flowers and shrubs.
Some of the native flowers seem to be out a month earlier (see BBC  article) than indicated in the literature. (see Telegraph article)
