A cloudy start to the day with a cool feeling wind, but the afternoon brightened up nicely.

The only bird species of any real note was heard in the early hours, - a TAWNY OWL (54), nice to get one on the August list  :-)  A LITTLE OWL was heard calling from the Small Holding this afternoon whilst I was in my garden, but my patch visit this morning was very quiet, nothing to mention of note, except maybe the passage of a few HOUSE MARTINS.

The only photo I took was of this Speckled Wood Butterfly.

Yesterday I had a trip to Sevenoaks family picnic wildlife reserve to photograph some dragonflies. I found a few nice Ruddy Darters.

A bit late finding your Wednesday post Warren, about which the excellent Tawny Owl and Ruddy Darter aside, the bit about Sevenoaks (family picnic site strike-through) Wildlife Reserve is my favourite....that's just my sarcastic streak shining through, but I do admire your speaking out when appropriate.

The KWT pander more to families than to the wildlife!

Cracking Ruddy Darters Warren. A species which seems to have come and gone from round here unfortunately :-( Maybe I'm just not looking hard enough.
