Birds and Butterflies. Devil's Dyke & Castle Hill National Nature Reserve. 17.06.22

This is a record of the photos I took on two locations on 17.96.22. First I went to the bottom of the Devil's Dyke with friends, and got a lift there in a friends car. Later in the day I went for a short walk to Castle Hill, near Woodingdean. To get there I took the 2 bus, then walked up the Falmer Road to the entrance to Castle Hill off the track called Norton Drive, which runs parallel with Bexhill Road. I walked north to south through Castle Hill and continues along the footbath that runs past the ruins of Ballsdean, and then up over the down on the path than becomes Bazehill Road. I took the 2 bus back home from the Bazehill Road stop. 2 - Steyning-Rottingdean | Brighton & Hove Buses
