Monday 19th May

I didn't get to New Hythe at all over the weekend....our fourth child is due in less than a month so home called! I did a quick half an hour on Saturday out of home along the lane at 5am. A Cuckoo called and flew across the path in front of me. Also 4 Whitethroat were heard and a Yellowhammer sang as did a Skylark - two birds I don't see too often at New Hythe.

On Monday I did manage 45 mins at New Hythe between 5 and 5.45pm. I hoped for some butterflies but didn't see any at all. There were 100+ Swift screaming overhead, as well as a few sand martin and house martin on Alders. Several Whitethroat, Willow Warbler, Chiffchaff and Nightingale sang. A Water Vole was in the usual place, 2 Slow Worm, 1 Common Lizard, 2 Hairy Dragonfly, 1 Blue-Tailed Damsel and several Common-Blue Damsels completed the sightings.
