Friday 4th July

A lunchtime sortie turned up one of the reported White Admirals on the edge of Barming Woods, from the footpath by Luckhurst Farm (TQ713557). My first seen in these woods. It made up for having to endure the company of Ross, who only yesterday had misinterpreted my message and gone to Mereworth Woods instead of Barming, but still managed to locate a White Admiral...sickening! Mike Easterbrook provided better, and more informed company and I'm also grateful to Mike Solomon who interrupted one of his erratic training runs to confirm what he'd seen and pass the message on.

A couple of Bullfinches flew across our path and Chiffchaffs called from the coppiced plantations.

Hi Adam,
Wish I had White Admirals over here. Did find my first small Tortoiseshell today though.
