Park Wood, Appledore - 1200hrs - warm, dry and sunny (at last) - On the way back from Ashford a walk in the woods at the `wrong` time of day still managed to deliver 9 singing Nightingales, 2 Garden Warblers, 10 Blackcaps, 5 Chiffchaffs, plus a host of resident woodland birds such as Nuthatches, Treecreepers, Greater and Green peckers, Mistle Thrush and Long-tailed Tits.

Dungeness  - 1430hrs - Another (or the same as earlier in the week?) Bee-eater found by ace rarity finder DB on overhead wires near his cottage. By the time I arrived on site it had moved down to Jarman`s, still on power lines, hawking insects. Not a great view, what with the heat haze (yeah, honest!) and all, but at least it showed. It wasn't here for long though and soon flew off high inland.
The only other piece of news was a Honey Buzzard over Littlestone this morning (OL).
