June doldrums

Lade - 0700hrs - cool, cloudy, ne 4 - The chilly north-easterly airflow continues to suppress moth numbers with only 13 species in the garden trap; even the KRC traps failed to catch much more.
Very quiet on the local patch with just the local Cuckoos of any note.

                                Riband Wave, Lade

Dungeness - At the Patch the usual motley collection of immature gulls and adult Black-headed on the beach, plus 10 Common Terns over the boil. Offshore a few Gannets, five Common Scoters west and a harbour seal. In the power station compound, eight Pied Wagtails and a singing Black Redstart.
ARC - A single Hobby flew along the railway line, plus Cuckoo on Tower Pits and two Marsh Harriers over. On the lake the expected ducks, grebes, geese and Little Egrets.
