Marsh Churches

Cool, cloudy, w4 - To finish off the Birds and Mediaeval Church tour we weaved our way across Walland Marsh, via All Saints, Lydd, visiting St Augustines at Brookland, famous for its detached wooden bell tower, St Dunstan, Snargate with its Elizabethan wall painting of a ship, and the iconic St Thomas a Becket at Fairfield. Birds noted included Buzzard, Cuckoos, Marsh Harriers, Tree Sparrows, Goldfinches and Lesser Whitethroat. Checked out ARC for the reported Temmincks Stint, but no sign of it.
Back at the Light Railway Cafe, Dungeness a review of the trip revealed 84 species, not bad considering nearly all were seen from the car.
A quiet night in the moth trap, although another Maiden`s Blush was a nice surprise.
