Despite the frosty mornings and then the gales and rain I've added 3 new species to the garden moth list this month: Spring Usher, Acleris literana, and Small Brindled Beauty. Garden list now 698.

 The year started with some very mild weather so the 2022 garden moth list stands at 3: Pale Brindled Beauty, Common Plume, and an Early Grey. Apparently the latter is the earliest record in Kent. Interesting birds seen since my last post include: The Little Bunting in Bexley, Grey Partridges at Sandwich Bay, the Little Gull at Chillenden and the Great Northern Diver in Dover Harbour.
