The Parishes Wildlife Group

Jan 31, 2018 | Village News

Red kites are being seen more regularly over the village and are being recorded in our Parishes.  During 2018 the group will be presenting talks on making a meadow and our rare Sussex plants in spring followed by a guided walk in the summer; recording the wildlife found in the Parishes of Wisborough Green and Kirdford not forgetting an evening walk to look for bats around the pond and stream, a walk which last year was memorably rained off after two marvellous talks on moths and on bats last July.

During 2017, we were able to run the series of talks and walks, produce a leaflet available in shops, pubs and the Parish Hall and retain Dr Alizon Barker to carry out a survey of the River Kird and its dragonflies.

With thanks to the Fete Committee, KKWG, WGPC and the South Downs National Park Sustainability Grant for financial support.  Watch out for posters and information in the local papers.
