We are hosting another fantastic exhibition!
Turtleastic is a display highlighting the environmental impact of marine litter.
The artist uses plastic waste found on the North Kent coast to create vibrant exhibitions with an environmental message.
It will be at Reculver until the 30th August, open Thursday – Monday 11am-5pm.
There are huge gatherings of swallows, house martins and the odd sand martin at Reculver today – catching insects at the top of the cliffs, swooping over the centre, resting briefly on the wires along the lane and generally preparing for their long journey south.
It’s a really beautiful sight.
On Sunday 26th June, we will have some very special guests at Reculver! There will be a group of players camping overnight and playing out some Roman-Saxon skirmishes. The towers will be open for guided tours – which will offer visitors the opportunity to see a fantastic view of the coast.
At the other end of the reserve, our Sand Martins are well settled in, as are the Mining Bees and Skylarks. Other recent sightings include Gannets, Sandwich Terns, Turnstones, Little Egrets, Yellow Wagtails and Oyster Catchers.
Lynne and I were sitting outside this morning by the centre and we saw a swift flash past at the speed of light. Later we confirmed the sighting on the Kos wesite. It is the first swift hurrah!!
Lots of redwings to be seen this morning. A very gloomy scene along Chambers Wall except the red berries in the scrub and the flash of the very shy redwings. Checking with the KOS website there have been 200 counted in the area. A cheerful sight on a dull day!
This event has been cancelled due to the weather and possibly hazardous conditions on Reculver lane due to ice. We will notify asap of a new date
