Turtle Dove

Lade - 0500hrs - warm, dry, sunny, S1 - Went to check the moth trap this morning and was greeted by a`purring` Turtle Dove atop the conifers, needless to say it was a `first` for the garden.
0800hrs - Monthly WeBS count of both pits produced large post breeding flocks of Pochard and Coot. Three Marsh Harriers hunting (one seen taking a baby rabbit) the farmland near the airport and several Cuckoos active around the main reedbed.
Dengemarsh - 1000hrs The Great White Egret could be seen from Springfield Bridge.
Eyed Hawk Moth, first of the season
