24th June

A Buzzard flew over the Observatory and two Mediterranean Gulls were noted during the day. The local Peregrine Falcons were also putting on a great display this morning.

A Soprano Pipistrelle bat was flying around the Observatory at 0010hrs when a Badger was also sniffing around the garden.

Moth-trapping overnight produced a couple of Rest Harrows of interest. Butterflies are abundant at the moment with big numbers of Small Skippers and Meadow Browns on the wing.

The flowers at Dungeness are putting a great display and include this patch of wild Moth Mullein and the count of Pyramidal Orchids is now up to 57 flowering spikes.
