Beddington 140709

A south-west wind and cloudy skies usually means a typical days birding. A few waders stage at Beddington during the autumn- today there were 17 Green Sandpipers (bottom), one Greenshank, one Common Sandpiper and a group of 25+ Lapwing. There was one Teal on the scrape- one of the first of the autumn. Also quite a few juvenile birds, fresh out of the nest such as Long-tailed Tit (middle) and a lot of adult passerines are keeping low and quiet because they are moulting- such as this Chiffchaff (top) which has visible moult in the head.
