BIRDS & BUTTERFLIES OF KENT
Sunday 26th August 2018

The weather wasn't too great for our second day trip of the weekend but luckily the rain stayed off until lunchtime. This enabled us to look for insects and flowers of the Kent chalk hills and we were delighted to see around 40 WASP SPIDERS plus ADONIS & CHALKHILL BLUE BUTTERFLIES, AUTUMN LADIES-TRESSES, MEADOW GRASSHOPPER and much more.

With the rain and wind arriving, we spent the afternoon at Dungeness RSPB reserve where a first-winter AMERICAN BLACK TERN eventually gave us some good views often in the company of BLACK TERNS for good ID comparison.
