This is a small village near Dover in Kent. My intention is to show some of the Village, its history and the wildlife I find there.

Male Northern Wheatear
Cock Wheatears are one of the most attractive of the migrants that pass through on their way to breed. When they fly they show a bright white rump but on the ground their contrasting blue-grey back, black wings and mask and buffish underparts are striking. This was one of two on the short grass of the paddock this morning.
This Brimstone moth, (above) a common species, was the first I've caught this year. as was the Flame Shoulder (below).
