10th June

Yet another day spoilt by thick fog for most of the time and nothing to report.

The Badger made its now regular evening visit.

Five Variable Damselflies were found at the Long Pits.

Most of the interest was elsewhere with the Collared Pratincole seen again on the Reserve where a Rose-coloured Starling also made a brief appearance. The Hooded Crow at Greatstone also reappeared and was a lot more co-operative this evening.
