Monday 11th May
An extremley windy day with a cold NE wind blowing across the orchards. Not much to report except a couple of Swifts sliding through the wind over the strawberry plot on the Research Station land.
After work I was press ganged into collecting an Ebay purchase from Sittingbourne. Trying to make the most of a loathsome journey I picked up Mike Easterbrook to check out an orchid site on the way. I'm glad I did as we saw 25+ Lady Orchids, 6 Fly Orchids, 1 Birds Nest Orchid and a Lesser Butterfly Orchid.
