The fantastic autumn colours of late October and Early November have now been replaced by frosts and heavy mist with temperatures down to three below freezing.  The yellow and gold Beech leaves have gone and only the Birch remain. 

Butser Hill is at 270 metres the highest point on the South Downs and offers a 360 degree view of the surrounding countryside.

The BBC have taken advantage of the current full moon, and the view from Butser by filming part of a new documentary. The subject is an unusual one, ‘could we cope without the moon? How would the world be different?’  The programme will be released in the spring of 2011.
