The Trundle

The Trundle

After seeing posts online about a field of poppies, I decided to drive down there to have a look. The Trundle is near Chichester, and has a car park right next to the field. As you approach, there seems to be an endless amount of poppies stretching for miles. It’s always amazing seeing sights like this on your doorstep.

Here are some of my favourite photos from the trip:

Community Beach Clean

Community Beach Clean

I live by the beach and I have wanted to join a beach clean for a while now. With the uncertainty around Covid-19, all of the beach cleans I could find had been cancelled.

I was introduced to The Million Mile Clean by Surfers Against Sewage and saw that there were no beach cleans scheduled for Bognor Regis. On their website, Surfers Against Sewage had a simple guide on how to host your own beach clean. They even provided the gloves and bags! I then contacted the council and was able to borrow litter pickers for the day.

Most regulations had eased and the beach clean was able to go ahead, more than 50 people turned up which was amazing! From a quick glance, the beach looked clean, but we ended up filling multiple bags of rubbish.

After the success of the first beach clean, I’d love to set up more events to get the local community together to look after our beach.

World Bee Day

World Bee Day

So today is world bee day, a day of celebrating these amazing insects which do so much for the planet. I love photographing bees and try to get as close as possible without disturbing them. I’ve recently bought an extender for my macro lens and look forward to it arriving so I can try it out! Here are some bee photos I took last year during the summer, when they were out in an abundance.
