A busy day had me starting off with a walk around migrant Alley, where I was fortunate enough to find my second WHINCHAT of the year.
Later in the morning I joined a friend and visited Bough Beech Reservoir, where it was pretty quiet, not much action there apart from a few Green Sandpipers and a Common Sandpiper of any real note. I photographed a Brown Hawker Dragonfly whilst there, as usual with these big hawkers it was not in the best positon but provided good enough images for a few blog brighteners!
After the reservoir, we took a walk along the River Medway, mainly to look for Dragonflies, lots more Brown hawkers were seen but none settled for a photograph. Whilst there we found another two Whinchats in a bean crop, superb little birds :-)
Few Butterflies were seen along the rivers edge, but this Brown Argus was photographed as it fed on the Tansy flowers.
There was still time in the day for a quick sky watch back on my patch at Migrant Alley, where I added CORMORANT (59) to the months list.
