For the 3rd year in a row, our flowering Buddleia has attracted the spellbinding Hummingbird Hawkmoth. It buzzes effortlessly around the tree, almost moving at warp speed. Very lucky.

Oh, and for the 3rd year in a row, we have failed to capture a picture of the elusive celebrity without at least 40 pictures of blurry leaves and no moth! Next year, we hope!

    WESTFIELD WILDLIFE has been created for Westfield residents and visitors to submit news and photos of any wildlife observed in the Parish. We also aim to post our own sightings and topical wildlife news as often as time allows.

    WESTFIELD PARISH lies just to the north of the coastal town of HASTINGS in E. Sussex (south east UK), and a MAP of the area covered by the Parish is here http://www.westfieldvillage.co.uk/maps

    To REPORT A SIGHTING, with or without photo, click on the tab 'Post your sighting' just below the Westfield Wildlife banner to see how.

    To COMMENT on an existing posting, or to read others' comments, just click on 'LEAVE A COMMENT' or 'COMMENT(S)' below that post. Clicking on a post title will also reveal the comments box below the text, as well as any existing comments.

    To return to the latest postings at any time, just click on the Westfield Wildlife banner at the top of the page. And remember - nearly all PHOTOS can be clicked on to enlarge.
