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.

Stick out your tongue
Yesterday I visited St Margaret's Farm, Napchester, to get a pot of honey, which I use in my bread-making. Janet told be that there had been a Humming-bird Hawk-moth around and right on cue it paid a visit.
Seen from this angle the amazing length of the proboscis is apparent. When I got home Pam and I watched one briefly nectaring on Red Valerian in the garden. If the weather maintains through the summer I'm sure we'll have a good number around, and plenty of reports of Hummingbirds in the newspapers.
