11th June 2008

I was lucky enough to hear two Cuckoos this morning - 1 calling from the orchards between East Barming and East Farleigh and a 2nd from my open oofice window, calling across the orchards adjacent to Sweets Lane, East Malling. An added bonus was my first Kent Small Tortoiseshell of the year, visiting strawberry flowers in a polytunnel on a farm near Goodnestone.

Great to hear you found a Small Tortoiseshell Adam. I have only seen 1 this year in early spring. Welldone with hearing the Cuckoos too!

Well done with the Small Tort Adam....I am making a concerted effort to see one this year....hard with the weather!

Still waiting for a Small Tortoiseshell here, another bad year for them I think.
