19 November 2010
On the cleared scrub area on the lowers slopes of Mill Hill a Peacock Butterfly basked on the dewy large leaves of a Great Mullein plant. Cleistogamic flowers of Sweet Violets and Dog Violets were scattered thinly over the lower slopes with a few petals of Hawkbits remaining. 
 

Three Bearded Milkcaps, Lactarius pubescens, were again seen under the small Silver Birch trees on the verges of Mill Hill Road in north Shoreham.

A Force 5 blew steadily through the daylight hours from SSW, regularly gusting to Gale Force 7 and this could be seen on the sea with large waves forming and whitecaps everywhere (indicative of a Force 6).

3 November 2010
With a shortage of nectar flowers there were very few bees and no butterflies around on an overcast day. Three medium-sized Yellow-footed Solitary Bees, Lasioglossum xanthopum, visited the flowers of the Musk Thistles on a cleared patch on the lower slopes of Mill Hill above the path.
