#var:page_name# cover

Traditionally the arrival of swallows, nightjars and cuckoos herald the start of summer.

Join us for a summer celebration welcoming the birds back to Sussex and the Ashdown Forest.

Listen to the story of their epic journeys from their wintering grounds in Africa to their summer nesting sites on the Ashdown Forest. We will toast their arrival and pledge our desire to protect them, becoming part of their story of a summer on the Forest. You will also see a trail of artwork created especially for the event.

Meet at the Ashdown Forest Centre at 3pm

Suitable for all (includes walking 1km over sloping ground)
