A lovely day so a walk round Dungeness Reserve was on the cards. The first thing of notice was the lack of swifts as after days of hundreds if not thousands wheeling around the local lakes the absence today was obvious.
Yellow hammers were present as I drove over the marsh South end of ARC had Little Egret Ringed Plover and Redshank. The reserve showed Cuckoo still calling which is a late date. Still no Dragonflies but other insects were haching in the fine weather giving the hobbies pleanty to eat. Young Common Terns in the rafts were a cute sight. 2 Grass snakes were observed and one Lizard. Total 38
