Lade - 0700hrs - cloudy, mild, dry, ne 4 - A breezy sort of a day with cloud cover throughout. A reasonable catch in the moth trap last night including the first Pale Grass Eggar of the season.
Several Whimbrels went south over the cottage this morning.
Pale Grass Eggar
Dungeness Bird Observatory - Joined a convivial band of regulars past and present at the Obs this afternoon for a barbeque reunion. The main talking point was a seal that showed well at the Patch earlier and showed all the signs of a Bearded Seal, a sea mammal from Arctic waters.
Other local news concerned Roseate Tern and Bonaparte`s Gull at Rye Harbour.
