Lade - 0600hrs - misty start, sunny, dry, SW 5 later - A thick fog enveloped the garden early on whilst clearing the moth trap where the first Sussex Emerald of the summer was recorded. Also new for the year, Dagger sp, Barred Yellow, Miller and Heart and Club.
There was nothing much of note over the lakes, apart from the summering flock of 35 Curlews coming off the bay to roost out the high tide on the Desert.
Dungeness - 1500hrs - An hour at the fishing boats with MH and PB this afternoon, with a blustery westerly wind whipping up the sea, delivered a steady trickle of Sandwich Terns and Gannets, a couple of parties of Swifts and two cracking close Little Terns. Offshore a Grey Seal was on patrol.
