Dungeness Birds

I had two treats in one day at Dungerness this afternoon. A ‘ Balearic Shearwater ‘ and a ‘ Sooty Tern ‘ . The tern stayed around for quite a while and I had some good views through the scope but after chasing a few terns the shearwater flew off towards Rye.

Swallowtail Butterfly

I’ve received a report of a continental race Swallowtail seen in a garden at Pett Level on the 3rd August.
