A Garden Warbler was singing in the area.
If its is possible to have a favourite Cormorant then the individual shown below is it. It was colour-ringed with 8E3 as a chick at a nest in Denmark in June 2000. It is therefore a sinensis bird and has been seen in most years at Dungeness since 2006.

More checking of the butterflies produced a Holly Blue in the trapping area and another variant Small Copper in the moat.

Note the larger than normal black spotting on the forewing.
