30th July 2017

Nigel, Phil and I walked down the cliff-top, around the Freedown and back to the Monument via the Paddock and had 10 Whitethroats, a Lesser Whitethroat, 2 Chiffchaffs and 3 Willow Warblers. Apart from the warblers we saw 2 Ravens on the fence, up to 35 Swifts moving SW, a few Sand Martins and a Dunlin and Golden Plover.
The Butterflies seen were Gatekeepers in very large numbers, Common Blues, Small Coppers, Meadow Browns, a Clouded Yellow and a couple of Painted Ladies. Also had a Hummingbird Hawk Moth.
