Location: North Barn of West Blatchington Windmill,
Holmes Avenue,
Hove (TQ 279068)
Postcode: BN3 7LH (Google map)

In the sixties Sussex Wildlife Trust and the Sussex Ornithological Society identified the need to create coastal nature reserves in Sussex to protect the habitat of breeding and feeding birds from the increasing pressure of development and people. This led to both Pagham and Rye Harbour Local Nature Reserves being established at the opposite ends of Sussex. The manager of RHNR, Dr Barry Yates, will describe some of the changes in birdlife and the habitat management that makes Rye Harbour the home to more than 95 species of breeding birds and many other rare and endangered animals and plants.

Time: 7.30 pm

Price: £5.00 which includes refreshments+raffle ticket
