If you enjoy using a camera please send us your photos or videos of wildlife and landscape in the Binsted/Arundel/Tortington area.
For the time being these should go by email to MAVES Chair Julia Plumstead.
Please respect the rights of way and farming/forestry interests, and take care not to damage or disturb one kind of flora or fauna whilst photographing another.

In Binsted Woods you will find majestic oaks, spring flowers such as primrose, bluebell, early purple orchids, wood anemones and wood sorrel, and even a few daffodils and snakeshead fritillaries. A little way to the south east the old lane verges have plants scarce in the area such as Lathyrus linifolius.
