Eastbourne to Cuckmere

We had a fantastic walk from Eastbourne to Cuckmere Haven via
Beachy Head. This is one of our favourite walks in Sussex as it is really scenic, has loads of wildlife and plants to see and the walk is challenging too. 

The South Downs Way is a long distance footpath that stretches across the whole of Sussex. This part of it is the most spectacular.

The chalk cliffs are the backdrop to the whole walk. There are peregrines nesting on them and we got great views today. We saw one feeding and when we checked out the poor pigeons carcass, we saw that it had a ring. I had to cut it's leg off to retrieve it and it turns out that it was a one year old racing pigeon. We informed the owner via the internet.


It was such a hot day! Not a cloud in the sky. The sea was like a mill pond.

Finally we descended and walked along the River Cuckmere.

To our amber reward at the Golden Galleon pub! AAAAAH!
