A Year of Wildlife Photography

David Plummer

Tuesday 23rd October at 7:30pm in Small Dole Village Hall

David Plummer is one of the UK’s best known wild-life photographers. He lives in Small Dole and those who live locally get the benefit of his open garden/exhibition events, his talks, his courses at Woods Mill, and his competition judging. If you don’t live locally, then you can hope to catch him on the television or, better, buy a copy of his recent book.

Hog News

Hedgehog Highway
Fulking does not score well on the UK recorded hog sightings map. Like Small Dole, Edburton, Poynings, Saddlescombe, Pyecombe, and Clayton, no hedgehogs are recorded, dead or alive. They are reputed to prefer suburban areas to the countryside and the map does indeed record their presence in Hassocks, Henfield, Upper Beeding, and areas immediately south of the A27.

If, on November 5th, you plan to celebrate the first attempt to shutter the House of Lords, make sure that you do not incinerate Fulking’s only hedgehog.

Due to popular demand and the success of the last calendar, Fulking villagers are putting together another photographic calendar to be published in 2019. Some lovely winter and spring photos have been taken ..

We have now decided to extend the deadline for photo submissions until 30th June so we can include wonderful pictures of the South Downs landscapes in full leaf.

So — please email your best photos of the following: Fulking and environs through the seasons, landscapes of the South Downs, scenic Downland villages, also wildlife, farming life, community life. The email address is photos@fulking.net. You will be fully credited and receive a free copy of the calendar.

Photos should be landscape format [horizontal] if possible, and preferably of a minimum pixel dimension of 2500 x 1700. Please get snapping and send in those submissions!
