SWT Woods Mill, West Sussex

Woods Mill is a Sussex Wildlife Trust reserve located just north of Small Dole on the road from Upper Beeding to Henfield and many people don't know it exists. I first went many years ago when I was at primary school and 'rediscovered' it recently. Since becoming a member of the SWT I attended one of the members events - a guided wander around the reserve and I was blown away by the knowledge of the volunteers and staff. There was so much more there than I'd realised. It was wonderful to learn about the different owls, birds, butterflies, dragonflies, damselflies, insects and flora. It was all done in a really friendly, relaxed, informative way that made it so much fun to discover what was right under my nose! Here are just some of the highlights of my many visits to the reserve.
