Weather, Hot Sunny 27c 

The long hot summer that a lot of people have been waiting for has been with us for a few weeks  and doesn't look to end in the near future, 
Most parts of the Lighthouse area are parched with Kerr's field just being a field with no hint of a flash and the Pond having very little water ,
With the very hot summer it brings the threat of fires , with 80 being tackled in the local area ,thankfully none in the lighthouse area, most being man made,

Male Cuckoo , GAC 
June and the start of July are usually quite quiet With very little in the way of waders to be seen and still plenty of swallows with juveniles lining up on the telegraph wires ,
Common Whitethroat, Reed Warbler and Chiffchaff the most abundant of the warblers, 

A nice Surprise On Friday evening with the appearance of Two Cuckoo's on the sand dunes near Sandy lane, 
An abundance of Cinnibar Moth caterpillars which most species steer clear of are a good source of food and hopefully they will stay for a while , they have been seen on three consecutive days, 
The second of two Cuckoo, GAC,

Observers, JK , DH, AMC, KD, GAC Et Al
