A quiet night, nothing but a few ‘planes about at searchlight exercise. The light by the buildings came on, and I could hear the voices of the men as they worked it.
Brilliant morning, very hot. Butterflies have been scarce this year, but noticed quite a lot this morning, a cloud of cabbage whites hovering over a lilac bush, Red Admirals and Peacocks fluttering about the road. Rows of finches were sitting on the telegraph wires.
