GUIDED WALK TO MARLINE VALLEY
Following a successful guided walk to Filsham Reedbed last week, we are pleased to offer a further guided walk in another Sussex Wildlife Trust reserve, Marline Valley on 20th July. The walk will be led by James Duncan of SWT who also led at Filsham Reedbed. James leads various events for SWT including walks, talks and natural history identification courses. He is passionate about conservation and has a particular interest in bird photography together with an excellent knowledge of birdsong. He is also experienced in the identification of invertebrates and plant species.
This visit to Marline Valley on 20th July will start at 10.00am and last for about two to two and a half hours.
Marline Valley is a wonderful mix of semi-natural ancient woodland, unimproved meadows and a classic Sussex ghyll stream situated on the edge of Hastings. Leased from Hastings Borough Council since the 1980s this site is designated both a Site of Special Scientific Interest and Local Nature Reserve.
James will guide us around the reserve stopping to identify invertebrates and plant species on the way as well as helping us to recognise the songs of various species of bird found in and around the local habitat.
If you would like to attend the guided walk, as there are limited places, please register your interest by clicking the button below. This will ask you for your name, the number of places (maximum of 2), an email address, mobile number and whether you are a BEG member. Places will be allocated initially to BEG members on a first come first served basis and then to non-members.

CLIMATE CHANGE:OUR LAST CHANCE?
A talk by: GONZALO ALVAREZ
Where are we now? What progress was made in reversing
climate change at COP26 in Glasgow last year? What were the main findings of scientific experts in the IPCC report finalized in February this year? What happened just recently at this month’s UN Climate Conference in Bonn? How bad is the situation now and what are or will be the consequences if we don’t act fast enough? What solutions have been agreed to reduce greenhouse gases and slow global warming? Gonzalo Alvarez is Chair of the United Nations Association Climate and Oceans division and will take us through what has happened over the past year and is happening now including what impact the war in Ukraine is having on the climate change agenda. He will be glad to answer all your questions.
