Tony Rouse

Location: Samphire Hoe and Densole, Kent

Details: Porter's Rustic and Portland Ribbon Wave at Samphire Hoe last night, both of which are probably breeding locally along with a host of common migrants. Meanwhile at home in Densole a male and female Dusky Hook-tip. Had a different female 3 nights ago and single males for the last few years, so suspect they must now be breeding locally?
