An afternoon visit for butterflies delivered our first Brown Argus and Common Blues of the year along the old railway line footpath, while a number of Silver Y moths were disturbed from long grass. In the garden several Holly Blues were active in the sun traps.
A late afternoon phone call from DB told of a Woodchat Shrike on the beach opposite South View cottage, necessitating a sharpish return to the point - and what a cracker it was, perched on an old gorse stump and sallying forth to feed. This was a new bird for me at Dungeness; if only I was keeping a year list... Unfortunately I didn`t have much time as guests were due in this evening, so only managed some poor record shots, although I`m sure there`ll be plenty of decent pics from the long lens on site. And yet another great find by local birder Dave Bunney.
