Wednesday 3rd October
A lovely warm, but misty morning. An early start to get plants in the ground saw flocks of Canada and Greylag Geese noisly fly low overhead to feed in a stubbly field on the east side of East Malling Research site. The mist had lifted by mid-morning and it was poistively warm compared to earlier in the week - a couple of Commas were seen flitting around the Italian Alder windbreaks, and a few Common Darter drifted across the public footpath. A lovely day was rather tinged by the news at lunchtime that yet more jobs were to go at the Research Station.
