Friday 11th June

I have decided to cease posting in the future and will instead concentrate on submitting my local records to BTO BirdTrack/Atlas, Butterfly Conservation, etc where they will be of greater use. Thanks to all those who have read, enjoyed and commented on my posts over the last 2 years.

Monday 1st June

A Peregrine was mobbed by seagulls, that included at least one adult Mediterranean Gull, over the eastern end of the East Malling Research Station site at 17:00 today. It stooped over the area of Hermitage Lane Quarry to avoid the attack. Haymaking was much in progress near Kiln Barn Farm, Ditton and attracted 5x Lesser Black-backed Gulls. It was also reassuring to see a pair of House Martins nest building on Kiln Barn Cottages, Ditton (but none on the research station site for the first time oin 12 years!) and a couple of Swallows flight up South Street, Barming this evening.
