Heath Fritillary East Blean
When I finished my appointments at Canterbury Hospital yesterday, I visited East Blean woods in the hope of catching up with a Heath Fritillary. I did mange to see them but they were very flighty in the strong blustery wind, consequently I didn't get the images I really wanted.

1 of 3 summering Wigeon was in front of Firth yesterday evening
The last few nights the MV has been very poor, this Shore Wainscot which is just about annual in my trap was the pick of the moths today.I joined AJG for a pleasant hour at the fishing boats this afternoon, the cooling breeze made up for the lack of birds.
