About Brede Butterflies

About this blog

The purpose of this blog is to record sightings, propagate news and generally raise awareness of the Butterfly Conservation Rother Woods Project – with specific emphasis on the area spanning the Brede and Tillingham Valleys. These two valleys are separated by a ridge which runs from Rye (in East Sussex), through Udimore and along towards Sedlescombe.

There are plenty of sites – links provided here where possible – that are excellent resources for identification of butterflies and moths as well as recording, so there is no intention to compete with those sites. However, I intend to record my personal sightings in the area on this blog (as well as properly for BC) and post anything else of interest or potential usefulness.

About me

I’m an IT Consultant of some 25 years with a lifelong interest in Butterflies. Since moving to E Sussex, I have been pleased to see what a rich area for wildlife it is – I’ve been lucky enough to see butterflies (and other wildlife) that I’ve never seen in the wild before. Many local woods have White Admiral, with many more home to Silver-washed Fritillary too – butterflies that can be very difficult to find in other areas.

I wholeheartedly support the efforts of Butterfly Conservation and their Rother Woods Project. If you do nothing else this summer, have a walk in a local wood… and take your kids too!
