Sussex Scrapbook ~ Wildlife walks throughout the year
Green Man
Easter Saturday 6th April 2012
Old Lodge - Poundgate - Camp Hill - Old Lodge
About 7.8 miles

This walk is a figure-of-eight route in the shape of a dinosaur without a tail. That wasn't planned - it was just luck. We started off by navigating around the Brontosaur's head in a bonce, nose, jaw direction then down the back of the neck all the way to er... Poundgate. Both sets of very differently-sized legs were tackled next followed by a final lunge straight to the throat!

The target species for today included Cuckoo, Stonechat and Redstart in the cranial region, birds of prey in the spinal area and all manner of farmland and woodland species trampled underfoot. Unfortunately we didn't see the Cuckoo or the Redstart but we did see a few Stonechats and the only bird of prey we saw was a Buzzard up high with a Raven having a dog-fight  that would have made a couple of Eurofighter jets look like jumbo jets!

Although Gorse flowers almost every day of the year, right now it's really going for it!

Great Spotted Woodpecker.
