Secondly , I hadn't expected to post again so soon , but I noticed a report of 10 Long-tailed Blue being seen inland from Reculver on the north Kent coast . With my brother visiting in the afternoon , I decided to make another attempt to find the species , leaving early on Monday morning , hoping to get back for the visit . Once again , Wrotham Hill made me wonder if I was doing the right thing , as all lights on the car , including front and back fogs were on going over the top , but as I travelled further on , brightness was showing in the direction I was heading . I arrived at the car park at Reculver Towers just about 0900 , in beautiful sunshine , albeit still a bit nippy . I checked the rocks for Black Redstart but none were found . The tide was on it's way in as I started along the seawall to Coldharbour . At the Wantsum outfall , a few Brent Geese were feeding , and two of them , one a
running . The sightings continued for about 45 minutes , with long spells between , with this being
Salsify / Tragopogon porrifolius , a member of the Daisy family , and a close relative of Goatsbeard / T. pratensis , found on grassland ,
4 of 6 Little Egrets that were roosting over high tide in a drained lagoon at the oyster farm ,
and , on one of the rock groynes , a flock of Sandering , also waiting for the tide to turn .
