Wandering down to The Patch this morning there were 2 Hummingbird Hawk moths on the perimeter wall, 1 still present when I came back. At The Patch there were plenty of gulls but I could find nothing interesting among them. 30 Common Scoter flew up channel and handful of Gannets were off shore. A dental appointment and other domestic stuff my ploddings were seriously curtailed today.
I have just heard the sad news that my friend and lovely guy Pete Neatherway has passed away today. Pete and his wife Mim were Beachy Head stalwarts for many years right up until Pete's untimely death. My thoughts are with Mim who is still recovering from serious illness.
