Wildlife enthusiasts in the South East are being challenged to spot as many different species of dragonfly as they can.
The National Trust is running a league table of sightings at its properties across the region.
It's hoped that monitoring the dragonflies more closely will help conservation work to boost their numbers.
Malcolm Shaw heard from Crispin Scott and Fiona Scully of the National Trust.
A man has been arrested on suspicion of murder following the death of a woman in Mile Oak near Portslade. The 19-year-old woman's body was found at a house on Chrisdory Road - but the cause of death has not yet been established. The 27-year-old man, from Burgess Hill, remains in custody. The Independent Police Complaints Commission is also investigating.
The five men who died at Camber Sands have now been named.
They were Kenugen Saththiyanathan, 18, and his brother Kobikanthan Saththiyanathan, 22 both of Normandy Way, Erith; and their friends Nitharsan Ravi, 22 of Admaston Road, Plumstead, Inthushan Sriskantharasa, 23 of Chadwell Road, Grays and Gurushanth Srithavarajah, 27 of Elsa Road, Welling.

The families of the five men who drowned at Camber Sands on Wednesday (24 August) have criticised the lack of safety measures at the Sussex beach.
The victims, 22-year-old Nitharsan Ravi, 19 year-old Kobi Nathan and his brother 22 year-old Kenigan Nathan, 27 year-old Kurushanth Anna and 23 year-old Inthushan Sri, had all travelled together from their homes in Greater London.
Satthiyanathan Arumukam, 51, the father of brothers Ken, 19, and Kobi, 21 says his sons - who can't swim - would have had a better chance of survival if there had been lifeguards at the beach.
Meanwhile, relatives of Nitharsan Ravi say there should have been better protection at the beach, considering a Brazilian man had drowned at the same stretch last month. His sister has questioned why the beach has only been blocked off now rather than after the fatal incident last month.
Mr Ravi's brother Ajirthan, 19, said that two of the men had initially become trapped under the water after getting stuck in 'slippery mud' and sand. The three other men entered the water to try and save their friends but the attempts. According to Ajirthan Ravi, Nitharsan and Kobi still had heartbeats after being pulled from the water but died while first aid was being administered.
Govia Thameslink Railways has responded to a decision by RMT Union members to strike on September 7th.
The union members have decided to take industrial action in response to planned ticket counter closures.
The strike will coincide with another strike by RMT members working for Southern - a subsidiary of GTR - as part of the ongoing dispute over the role of guards on trains.
Tens of thousands of passengers across the South will be affected by the action of September 7th.
This is a cynical and deliberate stunt by the RMT to try and bring our trains to a standstill by co-ordinating strike action on two fronts on the same day to cause maximum disruption, delay and damage to our passengers’ everyday lives and the economy.
The RMT leadership is playing politics with innocent people who are simply seeking to go about their business with employers, family and friends.
During face-to-face discussions with local union officials from the RMT and TSSA last Monday, we took our original proposals off the table, and agreed new proposals with them - a six months pilot at eight stations using volunteer staff to test the new Station Host role.
It was a very productive meeting and the RMT officials present were content to put the revised pilot proposal forward to the RMT leadership for endorsement. We are therefore perplexed that they have decided to call this strike day in protest at proposals that no longer exist and when a solution had been found.
