About Me

I am a novice to birding and have become interested since walking Frank our dog, a cross Flat Coat / Springer around Hastings Country Park and the surrounding area, I realised the little brown birds weren't just sparrows.

Sunday 5th August - More Butterflies

Having had a first yesterday with the White Admiral I wanted more so interupted Paul J in the pub for suggestions as to where to go and was recomended Windover Hill.

Starting at Wilmington, walking over Windover Hill to Jevington and back via Friston Forest we picked up a good selection, not bad for a second attempt by a novice. I thought Butterflies would be easy to photograph but they don't stay still, you have to get up close, also they can fly quite fast!
