At Lavernock reserve: 4 Magpie, 7 Blackbird, 4 Woodpigeon, 2 Blackcap, 4 House Sparrow, 1 Chiffchaff, Dunnock, 3 Robin, 10 Jackdaw, Wren, 2 Crow, 2 Swallow. Then Leps were – 3 Orangetip, 2 Speckled Wood, 4 Holly Blue, 1 Brimstone, 2 Large White. Finally I saw 1 Early Purple Orchid in flower in the wood and there were a few nice patches of Cowslips. At Cosmeston it was pretty quiet – distinct lack of birdsong everywhere. A Moorhen pair have 3 small chicks in the green weedy pool at the start of the Med. Village boardwalk. The Mallard pair on the dipping pond are down to 1 duckling out of an original 6. A Common Blue Damselfly there. 2 Greylags on W lake and 1 Tufty lingering. A Lesser Whitethroat was singing in the W paddock hedgerow.
