EMPEROR MONTAGUE BONEPART
Its been quite a week really,starting with the reluctant twitch at Margate for the dusky thrush,then finding five emperor moths at Oare plus Bonepartes gull and the Montagues harrier at Reculver.
DUSKY THRUSH MARGATE CEMETRY.thanks Malcom for persuading me to go.
EMPEROR MOTH, OARE.You can just see the male underneath in cop.
A second male EMPEROR MOTH was too late this time around.I had never seen this moth before but according to my moth book they are not uncommon.
BONEPARTES GULL at Oare
NOTE THE NEAT BLACK BILL

PINK LEGS SHOWING WELL.
ONE LAST CRY OF DEFIANCE
MONTAGUES HARRIER hunting the oyster farm at Reculver
It came frustratingly within range a couple of times,but not close enough.
