Splendid oak woods support a large number of woodland species, including all three British woodpecker species. Management work is being undertaken to replace the introduced sweet chestnut trees with more wildlife-friendly native species. In more open areas, up to 30 species of butterfly can be seen, including the scarce white admiral and silver-washed fritillary, while nightjars (right) and dormice occur on the heathland.

Some of the larger blocks of young coppice in the Blean support breeding nightjar, 4 pairs in 2000. They can use these areas for a few years but, although creating wide rides through coppice can extend the useful life of these sites, larger heathy areas are needed to provide long-term habitat for these fascinating nocturnal birds. Look out for guided evening walks next summer to experience these amazing birds for yourself.

Where to Watch Birds in Kent, Surrey and Sussex

Where to Watch Birds in Kent, Surrey and Sussex

This region, although heavily populated, offers some superb birding with its Wealden woodlands, chalk downs and heathlands, inland waters, and stunning coastal sites like Dungeness, Isle of Sheppey, Beachy Head, Selsey Bill and Rye Harbour. The area also has a good record of attracting unusual visitors, as it is often the first landfall for birds drifting off-course on trans-European migration.

This guide describes each site in terms of habitat, species, access, timing and calendar, enabling all birders to get the best out of any birding excursion in the region covered, at any time of year.
4th edition .Paperback 304 pages. 216x135 mm. Illustrations Many line drawings and maps.
