Autumn Landscapes and Colours: Hastings Country Park NR; Hastings to Fairlight. 03.11.21

Updated: Nov 4, 2021

This post records, in images only, the walk I made from Hastings to Fairlight through the Hastings Country Park Nature Reserve. The photos are in chronological order. At the end of the post there is a list of the animals in the photos; a route map of the walk and some details of the nature reserve from Hastings District Council. This walk is easily accessible by public transport: I caught the train to Hastings from Brighton arriving at 11.40; I walked to East Hill (the start of the park) from Hastings Station. At Fairlight I caught the Stage Coach 101 bus (hourly) back to Hastings Station at 16.30, as the sun was setting.

Animals in the photos
