Watching wildlife in Pegwell in June.This is the time of year when you will see garden birds, even the seed-eating finches, feeding their young on insects.
In hot weather try to avoid putting out dry food such as stale bread, as this can increase the chance of dehydration. Always chop nuts or use a feeder, as whole nuts can choke baby birds.

Things to look out for around Pegwell Bay

•Birds nesting, especially Fulmars along Pegwell cliffs
•Song birds still singing – ‘the dawn chorus’
•There will be an increase of Butterflies and Dragonflies
•Bats on the wing
•Meadow flowers, including orchids can be found in Stonelees
•Chalk and Limestone grasslands in flower
•Swifts, Swallows and House Martins chasing insects.
