Our National Bird of Prey Hospital™ can receive and treat more than 200 sick, injured or orphaned birds of prey each year.
Terns, gulls and wading birds descend to breed on the islands in spring and summer, while thousands of waders and brent geese migrate from the Arctic to feed and roost in safety here. With some of the most iconic landscapes in southern England, including the white chalk cliffs of Beachy Head and the Seven Sisters, and such well-loved landmarks as Ditchling Beacon and atmospheric ancient monuments like the Cissbury Ring, walking in the park proves a delightful experience mile after mile. Be aware that part of the trail can only be accessed at low tide, with no alternative route, so you can only do a circuit when it isn't high tide. There are two walking routes (including a sensory sculpture trail) and a cycling path, which make it easy to wander around and follow the sound of birdsong. While the terrain is mostly flat, you will pass through a variety of ground surfaces, such as a road, gravel, a sandy path, and a wooded area.Together, the 16 million gardens across the UK form an area for wildlife larger than all our National Nature Reserves. Besides the wealth of information on all these rare birds, the majority are of course illustrated with a huge array of generally excellent photographs (and the occasional ‘record’ shot! The nature reserves we manage are precious wildlife havens, alive with plants, birds, mammals and insects.
