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.

Build me up, Buttercup
Now that the flowers of the Rape fields have mainly gone, as the pods develop, it was good to see the somewhat more natural yellow of the Meadow Buttercup, Ranunculusacris, dominating this field. There's something summery about this picture and it is a song that nearly everyone remembers from 1968, by the Foundations.
This is a Small Elephant Hawk-Moth ( Deilephilaporcellus ), it is the smallest of our Hawk-moths with a wing span of only about 2 inches (5cm). It was the best moth I caught last night, a bit subjective, but I like them.
