Our events are a great way to see butterflies, learn about them, and visit some wonderful places and see many different habitats across Sussex. >We've got another excellent selection of butterfly field events lined up for you this year, all run by volunteers who are passionate about the wonderful butterflies that Sussex has to offer.
Most of our events are free and open to all, although there is a suggested donation of £2 to help us with our work if you are not a member of Butterfly Conservation. Please check the details carefully as some events are exclusively for members or require pre-booking. For further information, please contact Helen Corrigan at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please wear stout footwear to outdoor events and appropriate clothes for the weather conditions.
- Events that are suitable for children, but they must be accompanied by an adult.
- Events that are suitable to bring dogs along to, but they must be on a lead.

Grid Reference: TQ 2116 0745
Distance: Short - 1.5 km amble
Meeting place: Mill Hill Upper Car Park
Terrain: Chalk grassland site with rough paths and a very steep slope.
Target species: Grizzled Skipper, early Spring butterflies
Mill Hill is a wonderful site for butterflies and for the past three years has been the place where the UK's first Grizzled Skippers have emerged! So this could be a recording-breaking start to the BC Sussex event season. If not, it will be an opportunity to visit this lovely site and look out for other spring butterflies or just have a nice amble outdoors!
No butterfly experience necessary so beginners and families will be particularly welcome. Please feel free to bring well-behaved dogs on leads. Stout footwear needed for the steep slope and rough terrain. Public transport access is possible. The site is a 30 minute walk from Shoreham-by-Sea train station. Alternatively the no.2 Brighton & Hove bus service or 700 Stagecoach coastliner stop in Shoreham.
