Lade - 0630hrs - warm, dry and sunny, cooler when a sea mist rolled in, e2 - Nothing much of note over the pits, but `tis about this time of year that I`ve had Golden O in the sallows.
Four more new moths for the year in the garden trap including Pebble Prom and Marbled Coronet.

                                           Pebble Prominent

                                           Marbled Coronet

Dungeness - 0900hrs  - Virtually nothing happening at the Patch while the foreshore was lined with fishermen. Sparrowhawk and Raven over the power station, plus Black Redstart, Mipit and Stonechat elsewhere. Plenty of Pale Grass Eggar caterpillars on the concrete path down to the hide.
Dengemarsh - 1500hrs - The Lapwing pair were still reacting as though young were nearby and 2 Garganey were on the lake. A Woodlark was reported earlier over the ARC side (per SB).
