Last week was nothing, the tension here has finally broken as I received news from Woods Mill of this years agenda for the Secret Wildlife Festival that we host each year at the Secret Campsite with Sussex Wildlife Trust. This sell out event is spectacularly popular and brilliantly organised by Michael Blencowe and his fantastic team from Sussex Wildlife Trust.
