popped down to west rise to look at dragons, first one i saw was a lesser emperor! after a little while of watching it flew off to chase away another dragon... another lesser emperor! the two remained patrolling a short territory along the northeast corner of the lake. not as easy to photograph as migrant hawker. the last one i saw in the uk was nearby at shinewater 13 years ago. not much on the bird front, new in were 1 dunlin and 1 snipe.

highlight of airbourne, taken from the garden! these things are big and loud and bloody impressive when they skim over your house, cant comprehend what it would have been like during the war.
curlew sand still down the cuckmere, also 2 lrp, otherwise pretty quiet. yesterday a bonxie off beachy and some porpoise were properly porpoising in the rougher sea.
