Kent Orchids + local stuff

Earlier in the week down the Cuckmere a Common Sandpiper was along the river and now a pair of Reed Warblers are hopefully holding territory in the SE corner of the scrape.

A walk with Paula behind Denton along Poverty Bottom produced an out of place singing Reed Warbler, as well as plenty of Small Blue butterflies.

On Wednesday after work myself, Ian, Chris, Dan & Harry went to Kent to search for a couple of rare Orchids, both of which I had seen before but not for some time.
