REELIN' IN THE EARS.
Have you seen what I have done here? What a clever play on words I reckon I could get a job writing headlines for the" Sun". Arriving at Reculver today just before 9.30 expectations were extremely low even after having phoned Heathy who had moved onto Grove, but informed me there was a year tick for me in the form of a Grasshopper Warbler which was reeling by Cold Harbour. The stroll down there was extremely uneventful with a single Common Tern and three Sandwich Terns being the highlight ... honestly. The Gropper was eventually located along with Whitethroat, Lesser Whitethroat and Blackcap. The Oyster Farm did not hold very much and it was obviously too windy for the Short-eared Owls to put in an appearance. At this rate I think I will have to take more interest in butterflies, moths and plants.
