FRIENDS OF TIDE MILLS - AUGUST REPORT
August 18 2014.
Jim Skinner reports:
Fifteen Friends of Tide Mills completed a very successful August meeting yesterday morning. Just seven sacks of rubbish were collected from almost the whole area from Seaford Buckle to Newhaven East pier.
Again, as we are now into the main holiday season, we would like to request that everybody who visits this special place, please makes sure no litter is left behind. Together we are undoubtedly ensuring Tide Mills remains well cared-for and championed for all to enjoy.
We believe that at least one pair of Wheatears has managed to produce two broods of chicks this year and at least one pair of Ringed Plovers has managed to fledge at least one chick. This is possibly the most successful year to date for these birds. As several other bird species are possibly still fledging, we would like to again request that visitors keep disturbance to a minimum if at all possible. If dogs could be kept under tight control it would be most appreciated.
After our meeting we enjoyed our Annual Summer Picnic, as pictured above.
Our next meeting is Sunday the 21st. of September, (always the third Sunday of each month), meeting at 10.00am at the waymarker adjacent to the beach at the road leading from the level crossing. Our meetings last nominally for two hours, but all are welcome no matter how much time can be spared.
