Met up with Bedzedders Gillian and Sophie today for a bit of Beddington botany.
Saw some Redshank- these had roots, leaves and flowers. We noticed that tit flocks, Goldfinch and warblers were favouring areas of Hemlock, Willowherb and Creeping Thistle. The lake islands are covered in a purple haze of Purple Loose-strife.
Saw Greenshank, Green Sandpiper and 5+ Willow Warbler on our travels. Got gripped with a Cuckoo.
