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.

Hummingbird Hawk Moth
Normally the views I get of a Hummingbird Hawkmothare of it dashing about nectaring on Red Valerian or Buddleia. Finding one in the Moth trap yesterday morning was a good opportunity to photograph one when it was still.
Perhaps because it hadn't warmed up, it even let me take a picture of its underside. It is a strange moth, with an oddly flattened body compared to other Hawkmoths.
This scene caught my eye, probably because I'm not good with heights. They seemed to be having problems getting the trunking down the chimney, but they chose the right day. We haven't had many calm dry days this week.
