One horribly wet and rainy Sunday in February 2009 the Hastings Conservation Volunteers, who do practical conservation work in the Rother area on Sundays, cleared a small, densely overgrown patch of land near in Beckley Wood for Butterfly Conservation. Thick undergrowth and young trees were removed in the pouring rain - with sodden work gloves and slippery tools.
The pay-off came 15 months later: Grizzled Skippers have now colonised this site!
