A further marbled white was flying in the hay meadows to the east of Moneypenny today, pointing to the wider establishment of the species to the east of the Rother. I also saw one in a wide ride in Hamstreet Woods last Friday.
On the river bank by Northpoint Pit this evening I was surprised to find 5 Marbled Whites. This was right opposite the N. side of Castle Water where the species now has a well-established population. Although less than 500 metres away, it’s still nice to find them east of the river where there is plenty of suitable habitat.
