Shoreham & Southwick

Natural History Winter Group

Natural History Winter group.
To contact Jess, the coordinator, please use the bluebird box on this page to send an email.
This is a new venture as we will be meeting on the coordinator's houseboat rather than in the Community Centre. This means that numbers are limited and there is a waiting list.

We meet on the second Friday of the month at 10 am. from October to March. We are always discovering new things at these meetings, especially as digital microscopes allow us to record what we see, although we are a little squashed on Myrtle, that has meant that it's easier to show each other what we're finding, and there's always the fantastic view out over the RSPB Adur bird reserve to look at during coffee break. Winter is when the Kingfisher comes, and the teal (the smallest British duck). redshanks, one greenshank, snipe etc. You might like to have a look at some of the things we have looked at by following the links----

In March 2018 we had an indoor meeting looking at catkins. click on exploring catkins to view a report of our exploring catkins.

In March 2017 the group explored shingle plant survival strategies. To see our report on this click on shingle plants.

In January 2016 the group had a session exploring ways of identifying a wide variety of butterflies - for butterfly photos/report click here - also photo to the right.

In May 2017 we visited Woods Mill. To see the reports (with photographs) of our visit click on Woods Mill pond dipping and Woods Mill walk To see some of the creatures we encountered in the pond dipping click on pond dipping video through microscope
