|Sarah Hughes, Community Wildlife Officer with Chichester District Council, will be setting a moth trap on Friday evening to see what moths live in the area around The Brewery Field.
Please join Sarah and I and other volunteers at The Brewery Field from 9-11am on Saturday, 20th May, when we open the moth trap and discover more about these, mostly hidden, residents of the field and what they can tell us about where they live. This event is suitable for all ages and anyone with an interest in wildlife. There is no charge.
The field is particularly lovely at the moment, with everything green and the scent of hawthorn. If you haven’t had chance to visit yet, find it off Orchard Street behind the West Sussex Record Office. (Head towards the Record Office car park, past the car park barriers and turn left to follow the edge of the car park and enter the field via a green wire gate in the far left corner.) For anyone with poorer mobility, car parking is available to the public in the Record Office car park on Saturdays – £3 all day (less in the afternoons, I think), pay the attendant at the barrier, and the field is a lovely place to sit (if needed, visitor toilet facilities are available nearby in the Record Office itself).
With best wishes,
