Anyway, not much was missed, the only real occurrence of note was the finding of the first PIED WAGTAIL young of the year, two were being fed on the lawn of a large garden off Ashes lane.
Today, in some warm sunshine, but a cooling wind, things picked up a bit with another addition to the 'successfully bred' year list being found, that being the SONGTHRUSH, three very lively and healthy looking recently fledged birds flew from a dense bush at the Small Holding area, this brings the total number of species with fledged young to 29.
Among the other 42 species seen today, were a couple of new ones for the months list, the first being a KINGFISHER (55) that was seen at the main lake, I didn't count on that one turning up this month, the other was HOUSE MARTIN (56) at least five flew over along with a few SWIFTS.
The regular three raptor species were all seen up hunting this morning, those being KESTREL, SPARROWHAWK and BUZZARD, but a real bonus raptor species for the month was seen later in the afternoon when a RED KITE (57) flew low over my garden, superb! Just 3 species needed this month now to equal the lowest June tally ever and 7 to reach the mean average tally for June!
Back to yesterday for todays images. I had a visit to Sevenoaks Wildfowl Reserve, which was teeming with damsels and the odd Dragon, allowing for some photographs :-)
This is a ''Rufescens'' form of the female Blue Tailed Damselfly
There lots of these Banded Demoiselles about too
A couple of Black Tailed Skimmers were found
The whole place was heaving with common Blue Damselflies
Some were found in 'Tandem'
Others were mating
