Police to toughen up on anti-social behaviour

Have your say

FAMILIES who visit the South Downs Way can now spot all sorts of wildlife, animals, crops and flowers with a new guide.

Produced in partnership with the Field Studies Council (FSC), the Field Guide includes a map of the South Down National Park, information about the landscape and habitats within the national park and the countryside code.

It’s also packed with unique photographs, some of which are from the FSC’s image library.

The idea is to provide an easy way to get the most out of the wildlife in the park and its countryside, and has tips such as how to identify a species of animal by the sound it makes.

As well as being an educational tool, which will be used for all sorts of outreach and school projects, the booklet is hoped to encourage people to become more active outdoors.

The Field Guide is available from the Field Studies Council website for £3.50 plus postage and packaging, as well as Tourist Information Centres.

There is also an online test of local wildlife and flora at
