A little stint was spotted on the reserve this morning, then managed to avoid being spotted again for the rest of the day. Also on the reserve today are black-necked grebes, common sandpipers and green sandpipers. Just to let you all know of a date to put in your diaries, the Dungeness Wildlife and Countryside Fair. This will be on the weekend 9th and 10th of August from 10am until 5pm both days. Admission is free and there will be plenty for all the family to do.

An excellent few days in the Lime Kiln moth trap (even last night despite the thunderstorm), with an average of around 60 species a night, the majority either Dark Arches, Dusky Sallow or Smoky Wainscot. Highlight among a wide range of notables was the first record of the rare micro Monochroa palustrella (below) at Rye Harbour for over 10 years (and only the fifth overall).
