Spring Sightings from Sussex Wildlife
Spring is a fantastic time to visit Sussex Wildlife Trust’s Woods Mill nature reserve near Henfield. Recently the nature reserve has been visited by a pair of little egrets, several cormorants, as well as heron and greylag goose. Whitethroat, house martin and yellowhammer have all been seen flying over head, with nuthatch, long-tailed tit and blue tit already nesting on the reserve.
Woods Mill, the headquarters of Sussex Wildlife Trust, is open to the public throughout the year. Free to visit with a car park and toilets, the nature reserve is a mixture of coppice woodland, meadow, reed-fringed lake and a newly restored river course with wonderful views of the South Downs. Sorry, no dogs are allowed at Woods Mill.
A circular nature trail and all-weather path guides visitors around the various habitats and there’s also a free phone App available to help you get the most out of your visit to Woods Mill.
