Clouded Yellow

Dungeness - warm and sunny, SW 3 after early showers - A brief visit to the fishing boats first thing delivered very little after the excitement of yesterday -  a touch of after the Lord Mayor`s show...
  From Hanson hide, wader wise, just Little Ringed Plovers, Ruff, Wood and Common Sandpipers, plus Garganey and Great White Egret from Screen hide. Plenty of Swifts and hirundines over the lake in the drizzle.
  An afternoon visit to Burrowes yielded a juvenile Black Tern amongst 100 Common Terns and Black-headed Gulls in front of Firth hide, including a colour ringed adult bird, T988. A Clouded Yellow butterfly on the track was our first of the summer.
