A small team of Club members, led by John Badmin, assembled on Sheppey on the 22nd July to see what could be found at two community woodland sites. Thistle Hill woodland, planted in 1999 and covering 13 hectares, has different densities of young tree cover and areas of open grassland while Eastchurch woodland is smaller, consisting of an area of open grassland encircled by trees. Find of the day was the stripy caterpillar of Helcystogramma rufescens, a first record of the species for Sheppey.
