Where is Lancing
is a large village in West Sussex on the south coast of England.
What is the purpose of the site:
of this Site is to present digital photographs I have
illustrate and identify some of the range of wild plant and animal
species I have found in
and around the
This website is associated with the Adur Biodiversity Network
of species is largely done by comparison with photographs
available in books or on the internet.
Further help is obtained via specialist wildlife discussion forums.
I am often reminded it is not always possible to identify a species
from a single photograph
In the case of some invertebrates it is sometimes necessary to view the
genitalia through a microscope.
I do not have this facility.
The Design of the site
I am not a designer and it was important that I set out to keep the
design simple but with enough flexibility to cope
with the expanding content.
I would hope that it gives encouragement to anyone who has not
attempted to make a website before to do it with out needing complex
software and elaborate design tools.
