|Ray was born in Shoreham-by-sea,
West Sussex in 1958, he lived in Portslade until 1987 when he
married and moved to Lancing. He has had an interest in wildlife,
photography and the environment for many years.
In 2004 this led to the project of the Lancing
Nature Galleries in
which the wildlife he has found in and around his hometown are recorded
for the website.
and social media has largely done away with the need for this kind of
site but as of October 2015 there will be some occassional updates and site maintenance.
