Viper`s Bugloss

Lade - 0600hrs - cool, cloudy, sw5 - Despite the continuing poor weather a decent catch last night. Toadflax Brocade, White-point and L-album Wainscott being the pick of the migrant moths, plus first Straw Dot and Light Arches of the season and another Cypress Carpet.
Dungeness - 1100hrs - The recent deluge has certainly encouraged more plants to flower. One of the most obvious is Viper`s Bugloss which currently is giving a welcome splash of colour across the National Nature Reserve. By mid-afternoon the wind was gusting force 6/7 making for difficult birding conditions.
The GWEgret and a Wood Sandpiper were reported from the bird reserve
