Bits & Pieces

Lade - 0700hrs - warm, dry and sunny s2 - Another decent catch last night with 33 species of macro moths of which Swallow-tailed, Brimstone and Smoky Wainscot were new for the year.
1700hrs - Made an attempt to count the waders as the tide receded this afternoon: 156 Curlews, 280 Oystercatchers, 55 Knots, 78 Dunlins, 23 Sanderlings, 6 Redshanks and 4 Ringed Plovers, many of which were adults in summer plum.
Littlestone - While Pyramidal Orchid is a common enough plant on the rough ground by the golf links, was surprised to find this one on a road side verge in Nether Avenue.
