ASHDOWN FOREST IN SPRING
ASHDOWN FOREST IN SPRING

Ashdown Forest in Sussex is situated in the High Weald and is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Covering over 6,500 acres, half of which is heathland, it is a very important and rare habitat.

The forest is a stronghold for Common Redstart, Tree Pipit, Lesser Redpoll, Woodlark and Common Cuckoo all of which offer the chance of great views. Raptors take advantage of the thermals and with some searching we can expect to find Red Kite, Common Buzzard, Eurasian Sparrowhawk and the outside chance of an early-returning European Honey Buzzard.

Other wildlife in the forest include Roe and Fallow Deer plus good numbers of early spring butterflies.
