The patch again produced with 2 RINGED PLOVERS another first for the site for me, other highlights included my 4th COMMON TERN of the year, COMMON SANDPIPER, LRP, CUCKOO, TURTLE DOVE and good numbers of SWIFT. A FOUR SPOTTED CHASER was seen as were a few BANDED DEMOISELLE were on the wing.
This afternoon we headed to Hollingbourne for a walk one of our favourites, it was fairly quiet although 2 NIGHTINGALE sung from the old quarry and a RED KITE flew west, a few butterflies were on the wing and I managed to catch up with a BROIMSTONE that landed briefly.

Hi Alan, if I read this so you have again seen a lot of birds and dragonflies. You even saw flying over the Red Kite. The pictures of the ringed plover are very nice. The cuckoo, turtle, butterfly and ehr klaf have beautiful gefootgrafeerd.

Greetings, Helma
