The Living Coast comes alive with summer’s butterflies!

Nothing sums up a Sussex summer more than watching our beautiful butterflies while they dance over the Downs, wander through our woods or circle us while we sunbathe in our back gardens. As we head into the summer the number of different butterfly species you can see in The Living Coast area increases and July is the peak time to head out and hunt for them.
