First Swallows return

Blue skies, southerly winds 20 degrees and 6 Swallows gracing the garden sky all day long. Our prayers answered! Around Shadoxhurst many more Swallows in the air and resting in groups on telegraph wires.

Down at Dungeness tonight (for 2 hours) a Cuckoo flew over the car park as I arrived. Many Chiffchaffs, Willow warblers, a handful of House Martins and Sand Martins. Also singles of Yellow Wagtail, Great White Egret and 1 Little Egret.  All the regulars by the fishing boats inc one Red throated Diver and  6 Porpoises.

 Little Egret and below Great White Egret both on the Arc Pit at Dungeness

In the late afternoon sunshine, France appeared to be closer today!
