Kayaking & Canoeing

The Cuckmere valley, which you will paddle through, is also a special nature reserve and site of special scientific interest.

During high water levels in the winter there are lots of wildfowl to be spotted. These include teal, wigeon and the ever present Canadian goose. Grey heron and little egret are found all year, and nest in the trees of nearby Friston Forest.

The Cuckmere River is valuable to migrant birds such as the Redstart and Ringed Ouzel.

Also look out for butterflies. The warm climate makes the area ideal for the Chalkhill Blue, Dark Green Fritillary, Marbled White, and Adonis Blue, which feed on the Horseshoe Vetch.

Please let us know if you would like to hire paddle boards and we can arrange this for you.
