3rd August 2018

Jack covered Bockhill this morning and had three Pied Flycatchers, eight Whitethroats, three Willow Warblers and a Blackcap. He also counted 84 Herring Gulls on the ground in The Paddock. This is almost certainly the highest count of Herring Gulls on the ground in The Paddock on 3rd August 2018!

In Kingsdown there was a Reed Warbler feeding in my garden first thing this morning. Later in the day two Pied Flycatchers were in and around the garden, with a Willow Warbler, a Lesser Whitethroat and 200 Swifts over late afternoon. Three Humming-bird Hawk-Moths were feeding on Buddleia this evening.

Yesterday 200+ Mediterranean Gulls flew S over Telegraph Hill in Deal.
