tropical Bahamas... Like a
belting hot desert... Lumbering Mammoth in
the distance... Funeral pyres and Sea-Eagles... slow moving flocks of
with clinking bells... Giant Bustards "like heaps of snow on legs".
All these are snapshots of Whitehawk Hill in the distant past, and
been many memorable sights in more recent times: Two or three
of horse-racing... Allotment gardens for two miles The
high on the hilltop.
Despite all the onslaught of buildling development and the damage
neglect, Whitehawk Hill still clings on to its special treasures:
butterflies like bits of the sky fallen to earth; spiders older than
dinosaurs; prairie and alpine flowers; a unique beetle known nowhere
Britain... Will these things survive for our grandchildren?
