Alfriston (4), Sussex
The riverside path with Alfriston Church in the distance on a hazy autumn day with the Cuckmere River over to the right.
The white on the tree just beyond the gate is not blossom it's the leaves. We did not identify it properly and it could be either a White Willow or a White Poplar.
The Cuckmere River with the village of Litlington in the distance. The village of Litlington is only one mile down river from Alfriston - an easy flat walk along the river banks.
You may notice the Heron landing on the far bank. Herons are fairly large birds and not uncommon and you are likely to see them fishing along this river.
The River Cuckmere and the surrounding meadows overlooked by Windover Hill lit up in the hazy autumn sunshine. Windover Hill forms part of the South Downs between Alfriston and Eastbourne and the South Downs Way goes over this hill.
The Cuckmere River with cattle grazing on the meadows beyond. The large patch of reed on the left is Norfolk Reed often used for thatching rooves.
