Mid-summer nature walk


On 20 June 2010, in partnership with Transition Mayfield, Jacqueline Thompson of Wildlife Splash led a nature walk through the fields and woodland close to the village. She showed how to unpick the story of land use past and present that has resulted in the marvellous biodiversity of plants and animals that Mayfield supports. Pitfall traps, kick sampling in the stream and sweep netting the grassland revealed beetles, grasshoppers and mayfly nymphs.
