Visit of British Dragonfly Society, Sussex group – 11th Nov 2012

The sun shone and we saw dragonflies (Common darter) despite it being November – the original aim was to look at habitat management so the sighting was a real bonus. A walk to the site stimulated much debate. Comments from group included:

“Many thanks for a very informative and enjoyable morning. The site promises to be a fantastic resource. We’re very glad we live nearby!”

“Could consideration be given to the deposition of gravel to allow breeding by sea trout? This is what the Ouse and Adur River Trust have been doing elsewhere with some success.”

“My children & I all enjoyed the presentations and I was very interested in the proposals for reintroducing 2 of the 3 meanders in the meadow …. I support the plan to reintroduce the meanders and look forward to helping to monitor the resulting changes in flora within the meadow.”
