Pastures new

Finally I have just a few moments to just to say I have moved from Sissinghurst to Boughton Monchelsea. I have managed to find a new patch but it is private and the owners aren't too keen on news coming out about what is there, which I will respect. This does give me quite a dilemma as I enjoy attempting to chronicle what I see. So far it has been very productive with 77 species since July 4th, so I will keep watching, as I think the potential is good for an inland site. I'm hoping to aid Don Taylor, (not that he needs my help :-) ) once we get things sorted in the new house, on his patch some weekends as access for me at the new patch is not as easy at the weekend.
I will do the odd post of any birding/mothing type things I do and I will have to come up with a different title for the blog, so watch this space for sporadic posts!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good luck with the new patch Alan, I hope you get a long list of species there.

Shame you cant post more often though, or give us a clue to it's where abouts. maybe some habitat information would be allowed :-)

Great to hear that things are finally settling for you at last Alan. You are even closer now so maybe we can catch up again. I met Gavin Coultrip at Oare last week he says Hi.

Hi Allan,

Very unfortunate that the owners are not so enthusiastic, but maybe you can come tote a compromise. Your photos are very beautiful weather. The little fox, a nice grebe and your two moths.

Greetings, Helma
