Lancing Ring Nature Reserve. Butterflies & Birds. 11.07.22

Lancing Ring Nature Reserve, is north of Lancing. I reached it by catching a bus to Shoreham, and then walking up the Adur estuary, crossing the Adur at the old Toll Bridge, continuing along the Old Shoreham Road until it meets the A27 Shoreham Bypass; where there is a pedestrian crossing over the dual carriageway. From the other side of the road I walked up the footpath that start in the grounds of Lancing College and goes up the hill to Lancing Ring.
